1. Falcons will end losing streak on the road

The final bold prediction for the Atlanta Falcons heading into another road contest in Week 6 while looking to end their three-game losing streak is that they will ultimately come away with a victory to get back on track in the 2019 campaign.

Although only five games have been played, Atlanta is already facing what might be a must-win contest at State Farm Stadium against the Cardinals this weekend. The Falcons can’t afford to drop their fourth straight game while moving to 1-5 overall nearing the midway point in the year.

Another reason why this game in Week 6 is a must-win for Atlanta is due to the fact that it faces two even tougher opponents in the weeks ahead prior to the Falcons’ bye week in Week 9. Following Sunday’s game in Arizona, Atlanta will return home for a pair of games, but will be facing tough squads in the Los Angeles Rams in Week 7 and the Seattle Seahawks in Week 8.

If the Falcons lose in Week 6 against the Cardinals, we could very well see them sitting at their Week 9 bye week with a record of 1-7, which at that point would basically result in a lost season moving into the second half of the schedule.

Atlanta is the better team when comparing it to the team on the other side of the field in Week 6 in Arizona, which means that the Falcons will be favored to end their winning streak and improve to 2-4 following the conclusion of the Week 6 slate of games.

There aren’t many teams that are in must-win situations this early on in the 2019 regular season, but Atlanta is already facing a game and week where it needs to come away with a road victory to try and save its year and push itself back into the conversation in both the NFC South standings and league standings in general.

On Sunday afternoon at State Farm Stadium, the Falcons will bounce back to pick up a win and end their three-game losing streak in another road showdown against the Cardinals.
