Atlanta Falcons vs Seahawks: Week 11 staff predictions
The Atlanta Falcons will play on Monday Night Football against the Seattle Seahawks. Our staff writers try and predict the outcome for the Week 11 game.
After a huge win in Week 10, the Atlanta Falcons suddenly feel like a team to believe in. They had started out 3-0, but a 1-3 stretch got them to a .500 record and made fans pull their hair out as they wondered what happened to their fast start.
Then with the Dallas Cowboys visiting, they went off. Defensive end Adrian Clayborn had six sacks and the team as a whole had eight en route to a 27-7 beating. After they now leapfrog Dallas in the quest for a Wild Card spot, they eye their next prey ahead of them — the Seattle Seahawks.
Seattle is struggling with health up front like Dallas was before the defensive explosion, and Atlanta showed they can handle them early this calendar year as a January playoff game saw the Dirty Birds eliminate the ‘Hawks.
Can they make it two in a row? That’s exactly what our staff members will tray and predict.
