If the Falcons can hold the Rams to 13, you figure they could do the same against the Philadelphia Eagles, who lost starting quarterback Carson Wentz for the year to a torn ACL in Week 14.

Sunday, January 14, at 4:40 p.m. ET on Fox: New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings (-5, 46.5 O/U)

Sunday, January 14, at 1:05 p.m. ET on CBS: Jacksonville Jaguars at Pittsburgh Steelers (-7, 41 O/U)

Cornerback Desmond Trufant is also one of the best in the business at his position. The X-factor may be rookie linebacker Takkarist McKinley, who accrued five sacks in his past eight games (including playoff games). The defense is much stronger with McKinley forming a tough one-two pass-rush punch with Clayborn.

The defense is fast and hard-hitting, led by linebacker Deion Jones (team-leading 91 tackles and three interceptions) and defensive end Adrian Clayborn (team-leading 9.5 sacks).
