Week Four is back in Atlanta as the Falcons take on the Washington Football Team

This game is going to come down to one simple thing, can the Atlanta offensive line give Matt Ryan any time to throw in the pocket? By week four Ryan Fitzpatrick is going to be cooling off and the Washington offense is hardly elite.

You can count on Fitzpatrick to make a big throw in this game just as you can count on him to turn the ball over at least once in Atlanta.  Seeing the offensive line in pre-season thus far it is concerning how little depth or skill the Atlanta Falcons have in the trenches.

If Ryan can remain upright for any significant time then Atlanta is going to win this game. Running the ball against this front is going to be close to impossible and Atlanta will have to once again rely on Ryan to get it done.  I believe he does in a very close low-scoring and turnover-filled affair.

Final score: Atlanta Falcons -17 Washington-13  Record-3-1
