Atlanta Falcons LISTEN: 'Must-Wins'? Or 'Time to Tank'?

Locked On Falcons: Falcons Get Shut Out By Patriots on Thursday Night: Week 11 Rapid Reaction

It has not been a good week for the Atlanta Falcons.

Following a 43-3 loss Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, the team responded by failing to put up a single point and allowing 25 in a loss on Thursday Night Football to the New England Patriots.

With the failure, the Falcons now sit at 4-6 on the season, but the past two games have made them look like they might not win a single one of their final seven games on the schedule.

Is that overreacting? Or reality?

The Falcons are not riding on any momentum and with injuries continuing to pile up, this team needs a miracle if they want to remain competitive for the rest of the season.
