I have Cincy in lineup. Anyone think Atlanta should be in?

I would stick with Cin, but I think it is a coin flip.
Thanks Franchise Fan for the sig!

I think it's Cincy by a fairly healthy margin. I actually think they may give up a few more points since Charles is too talented not to break into the endzone a couple times if he gets enough touches. The Chiefs' QB situation is so bad, though, that I'm quite confident Cincy will pick up more turnovers than Atlanta and also think they have a better shot at scoring on D/ST.

I'd actually go with ATL

They aren't great against the run (#25), but what team is going to run against ATL when they are losing? Also, ARI's O-line is horrendous; their run game has struggled to find viable holes all year. LaRod will have a halfway decent game (80 yards, MAYBE a score), but it won't make that much of a difference. The game will need to be won through the air, which is why ATL will kill ARI today. I think that also makes a scenario ripe for some ARI turnovers.

CIN is #20 against the run. Enter Jamaal Charles. Look out: Charles will be in charge.

We know that ARI will need to pass in order to try and win this game (they'll lose), and ATL is #18 against the pass. But the ARI passing game is so bad, all you do is game-plan for Fitz and you're good to go (sadly for Larry - the guy's awesome).

CIN's pass D won't be an issue, because KC sucks.

Anyways, I go with ATL because of the turnover potential, and because CIN will have their hands full with Jamaal all day. Good luck.
