When the Falcons meet the Vikings, there will be a few key matchups that decide the fate of the game. Let’s take a look at three:-Falcons LT Will Svitek vs Vikings DE Jared Allen – On a team that is bereft of talent overall, Jared Allen is a massive exception. The super talented pass rusher already has 13.5 sacks on the year and the Falcons will prioritize him as the main threat on the Vikings defense. It will be up to Will Svitek to stop this great player.
