(Sporting Alert) — The undefeated Atlanta Falcons take its 7-0 record this season into Sunday’s clash with the Dallas Cowboys, hoping to remain the NFL’s only perfect team in the campaign.
The Falcons, who went 1-3 in preseason have had their share of close contests, but managed to dig deep into the reserves to fend off the challenges.
They returned from a bye week to punish the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 8 last Sunday and will look for just about the same against a Dallas team that is 3-4 this season and dropped three of its last four games.
But this clash isn’t the only highlighted contest on the schedule, as the battle between the Arizona Cardinals and Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers against the New York Giants, are also set to bring some excitement.
Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers will be at Washington Redskins, with RGII leading that troop, while Michael Vick is expected to start at quarterback for Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints.
The New York Jets, San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots are amongst the bye teams this week.
