ESPN analyst: Falcons not insurmountable foe for Cardinals
The Atlanta Falcons are 8-1 on the season.
The Arizona Cardinals are 4-5.
The Falcons won eight straight before falling in a close battle to the New Orleans Saints last week.
The Cardinals have lost five straight, having been beaten by the St. Louis Rams and Buffalo Bills, among others.
Oh, and Arizona has not won a game in Atlanta since 1993.
Yet, ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworski believes that while the Falcons are good, the Cardinals can come out of this game on top.
“They’re a very good football team, there is no doubt of that, but they are not an unbeatable football team,” the analyst told Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo Thursday.
Jaworski notes how the Falcons have some playmakers on the offensive side of the ball, especially with quarterback Matt Ryan, receivers Roddy White and Julio Jones and tight end Tony Gonzalez.
“But I think if you can match up in a physical-style of game, I still believe they’re designed for the finesse game on both sides of the football,” he said.
