Falcons face must-win situation vs. Vikings

Why to watch
It's a must-win game for the Falcons in a tight NFC playoff picture. Other than that, this could be an ugly game, especially since the Vikings very likely will be without Adrian Peterson for a while with that high ankle sprain.

Inside story
It seems like no one talks about Michael Turner anymore, but he's every bit as valuable now. For all the talk of a more explosive offense, Atlanta remains at its best as a power-running team with Matt Ryan working off play-action passes. Turner is fifth in the NFL in rushing yards, fourth in rushing TDs, and second in rushing attempts.
