Atlanta Falcons: Five toughest games in 2016
2. Seahawks on the road
Not only are the Seattle Seahawks one of the best teams in the National Football League, they also play at home in of the toughest environments for visiting teams. The Falcons must go into the home of the “12th Man” and find a way of picking apart a dominant defense.
This will be a big game for Dan Quinn, returning to the place he won a Super Bowl as DC. Quinn knows this Seahawks team well and might have a gameplan to slow down Russell Wilson. He’ll need his pass rushers to be on top form, however, as Wilson is one of the toughest quarterbacks to bring down.
Seattle has dominated at home in recent seasons, although they showed a little vulnerability last term losing three games at CenturyLink Field and almost a fourth to Pittsburgh.
Quinn would love nothing more than to go back to Seattle and pick up a statement victory. It will be one of the toughest challenges this Atlanta team faces all season, however, as Seattle will return a better team poised to make another Super Bowl run.
Can the Falcons find a way to break down the “Legion of Boom” and take the crowd out of it? That’s the ultimate challenge.
