Giants, Falcons seek to shore up their weak links

ATLANTA (AP) Something has to give when the Atlanta Falcons' porous defense faces the New York Giants' sluggish offense on Monday night.

The Falcons rank last in third-down percentage, second-worst in scoring average and third-worst in average yards allowed. They've been hit hard by injuries and won't get their defensive captain, middle linebacker Deion Jones, back for another four weeks.

New York struggles to sustain drives behind 37-year-old quarterback Eli Manning. He has been sacked 20 times, third-most in the NFL. Star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has complained about the scheme and wants more touches. Injuries have caused problems, too.
