ESPN analyst thinks Cardinals can knock off Falcons

Bruce Kluckhohn-US PRESSWIRE

The man better known as 'Jaws' believes the Cardinals have the weapons to potentially knock off the Falcons.

It's as difficult a game as the Arizona Cardinals will face all season. Lucky for them, they're coming out of a bye week and have had plenty of time to prepare for one of the NFL's best teams in the Atlanta Falcons. Although the Falcons would seem to be the superior team, one ESPN analyst thinks the Cardinals have what it takes to secure an upset.

Ron Jaworski says the key to beating the Falcons is playing a physical football game and pushing their playmakers, like Tony Gonzalez, Julio Jones and Roddy White around.

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.

Jaworski notes the Cardinals would be smart to put tight end Rob Housler to good use a week after New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham had seven ctaches for 146 yards and two touchdowns against the Falcons.

This won't be an easy task for the Cardinals though. The loss to the Saints was a minor blemish on the Falcon's 8-1 record. The Cardinals are sitting at 4-5, losers of five straight. They also haven't won a game in the Georgia Dome since 1993.
