Banged-up Falcons face tough Lions test in London

LONDON (AP) They're on a four-game losing streak and banged-up on both sides of the line. Frankly, the Falcons as a team are looking questionable for Sunday's London showpiece game against the Detroit Lions.

To score an upset and jump back into the thick of the NFC South race, Falcons players say they'll need to run the ball with authority - something they've rarely managed in a 2-5 season. And they must provide quarterback Matt Ryan a mix of short-range, quick targets designed to keep "Matty Ice" from becoming "Crushed Ice."

"We've got to get the ball out a little quicker because of our offensive line situation," said receiver Roddy White, referring to a unit that has lost four starters to season-ending injuries. This year's top-draft-pick, left tackle Jake Matthews, is nursing a sprained ankle, and Atlanta is starting an undrafted rookie at center Sunday.
