GAME TO WATCH
at San Diego (2-0)
3:05 p.m. Sunday, Qualcomm Stadium (Fox)
The Falcons will play an AFC West team for the third straight week, which means they could be at the top of the NFC South and AFC West standings with a win over the Chargers. Neither team has lit it up on offense, but the Chargers defense has been solid — especially against the run — so Michael Turner should be a good test.
