The 0-5 Atlanta Falcons come to town this Sunday. Here are the five players from that squad the Minnesota Vikings should be most concerned about.

Sunday, Oct 18. Vikings -4.5. 12 PM CT. 0-5. 44. FOX. 1-4. 60

The Minnesota Vikings are coming off a heartbreaking defeat to the Seattle Seahawks that dropped their record to 1-4. The team is definitely better than their record indicates and even with the unimaginable slow start, can still fight their way into playoff contention.

To do that, the Vikings have to beat the 0-5 Falcons at home this Sunday. While the Falcons are 0-5, they have also lost a couple of games that they were well in control of late into the fourth quarter. Like the Vikings, this team is better than their record indicates and has plenty of star power on the offensive side of the football.

On defense is where the Falcons struggle. They have some injury concerns in their secondary and have some players who aren’t living up to their big named status in the front-seven. Despite all of this, they still have plenty of players the Minnesota Vikings need to be concerned about. Here are five of them.
