Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE
Despite losing for the first time last week, the Falcons are still considerable favorites over the Cardinals.
After starting the year with four straight wins, the Arizona Cardinals are looking for answers in Week 11. The team has dropped their last five games and are heading into Atlanta to take on a Falcons team that just lost their first game last Sunday.
When the Cardinals hit the road this weekend, they'll be considerable underdogs. According to Odds Shark, the Falcons opened as 9 1/2 point favorites. Other lines on various sites have moved all the way up to 10 1/2 or even 11 points. The over/under for the game opened at 45 1/2, although it's dropped a bit to 44 in recent days.
The most interesting matchup to watch for this weekend will be Atlanta's passing attack against the Cardinals' defense. Matt Ryan has the Falcons ranked 4th in passing yards, while Arizona is No. 2 in pass defense. Neither team has much of a run game, so this could be the determining factor on Sunday.
