Predicting the Atlanta Falcons’ season: Weeks 9 through 12
Week 12: Atlanta Falcons @ Washington Commanders on November 27th
The Falcons are on the road to take on Washington, but is anyone really ‘on the road’ when they go take on the Commanders? Not really.
All kidding aside, this could be another opportunity for the Falcons to make it back to .500 on the year while also picking up their third win in a row.
The Commanders made a move at the quarterback position by bringing in Carson Wentz who will either win you a game or absolutely throw away a game, with no in-between.
They do have some young offensive stars in Terry McLaurin and Antonio Gibson, but if you stop them then this offense will be in its grave.
Then on defense, they have one of the most talented defensive lines in the league. This is where you should worry about the Falcons as they will have to block Chase Young, Montez Sweat, Daron Payne, and Jonathan Allen. But we said that same thing when these two teams met last year and Matt Ryan only ended up getting sacked one time.
If you can get past their frontline then you could have huge success as an offense because their linebackers and secondary are not good, to say the least.
As long as you can stop their two offensive playmakers and get past their defensive line then you can beat this team — provided that Deion Jones does not miss a tackle at the end of the game.
