After a week off due to a much-needed bye week, the Indianapolis Colts (4-5) and the Atlanta Falcons (6-3) both return to the playing field this weekend for a rare matchup between the two teams.
Due to the nature of the Colts playing in the AFC and the Falcons in the NFC, the two sides meet only once every four years, with the last meeting coming in 2011 when the Colts were playing without Peyton Manning and on their way to a disastrous 2-14 campaign. This time, they will again be without their starting quarterback, as Matt Hasselbeck will take the reigns from the injured Andrew Luck.
The Colts lead the series 13-2 all-time against Atlanta, and they will look to add to that success this Sunday. The Falcons started off the season very strong (5-0) but have really struggled since then, and they'll be looking to get back on the right track and compete for a playoff spot down the stretch. The Colts have struggled for much of the season but notched their biggest win yet over the Denver Broncos right before the bye, so they hope to carry over that success and make a run to win the AFC South. It's a big game for both sides as both teams are fighting for a spot in the playoffs and we're now to week eleven already, so while it doesn't mean a whole lot in terms of seeding since they're in different conferences, both teams are still playing for quite a bit on Sunday.
