I can’t possibly be the only one who gets excited when the Baltimore Ravens play the Atlanta Falcons. Despite having a Super Bowl ring and having won nine times more playoff games, Joe Flacco is seemingly a second-class citizen compared to fellow 2008 draftee Matt Ryan.

Ryan gets the press and the acclaim, but Flacco will gladly keep his ring and playoff wins, and on Sunday, Flacco has another chance to show he is the one who deserves the acclaim.

To do so, Flacco and the Ravens will need to defeat a 2-4 Falcons team that while talented at some spots, has too many weaknesses to seriously compete for a championship this year.

Let’s take a look at the Falcons to see what to expect on Sunday.
