Predicting the Atlanta Falcons first four games of the year
Week 2: Atlanta Falcons @ Los Angeles Rams on September 18th
The biggest question leading up to this game will be how many points the Rams are favored by against the Falcons.
For right now the Rams are 13-point favorites, but will that go up or down by the time September 18th rolls around? We shall see.
One thing to consider though is that the Falcons were able to almost pull off an upset against the Chiefs in 2020 and then last year they were able to keep pace with the Buffalo Bills up until they pulled away in the fourth quarter. Those were two really good teams that they were able to keep up with, could they do that in this game?
While the point spread is high, do not be shocked if the Falcons were able to keep up with the defending Super Bowl champions for much of the game.
If they are able to linger around until the fourth quarter, then maybe, just maybe they can pull off the huge upset.
However, the Rams are viewed as the much better team for a reason, ultimately they will probably win but this game could be closer than most would predict.
