Will the underdog Cardinals cover the spread tonight in Atlanta when they visit the Falcons at 7:00PM ET?

OUR PREDICTION: These two teams should compete for a playoff spot this season. I don't like the hook in this game, with the Falcons laying 3.5 in what should be a tight game throughout. Arizona is projected to have a top 10 (if not top 5) defense and will the starters getting an extended look tonight, I like the Cardinals to cover as underdogs, if not win outright.
