Monday night will culminate the end of an eventful Week 5 in the NFL, with the New York Jets traveling to face the struggling Atlanta Falcons inside the Georgia Dome.

New York Jets (2-2) at Atlanta Falcons (1-1)

Game Time: 8:40 p.m. ET

TV: ESPN

Radio: Sirius XM Radio, Ch. 86

Online: Audio PassGame Rewind

Odds: Atlanta -9.5

This match-up will feature rookie quarterback, Geno Smith, who has been solid but thrown too many interceptions (8) this season, against veteran quarterback Matt Ryan. Will Atlanta be able to turn around their season with a win Monday Night against a rookie quarterback? Will Smith be able to show week-to-week improvement and play well enough for the Jets to steal a road win?

Former Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora has two sacks, two forced fumbles and one interception for the Falcons. He returned the interception 68 yards for a touchdown.
