Minnesota @ Atlanta
Matt Ryan is beginning to play much better, which is great news for the playoff-hopeful Falcons. Christian Ponder and the Vikings turned in a better effort against the Raiders last week, but with Adrian Peterson banged up, Minnesota won’t be able to last against a desperate Atlanta team.

The reeling Minnesota Vikings traveled to Atlanta on Sunday to face the Falcons, who have won four of their past five games.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been ruled out of Sunday's game because of a sprained left ankle. The Vikings announced Saturday that Peterson had been downgraded on the injury report from doubtful to out and would not travel with the team to Atlanta to play the Falcons.

The Falcons are hoping to improve their red zone production and Michael Turner could be one of the keys. Plus, get several intriguing matchups to watch for Sunday’s game.
