For the first time this season, there is a reason to believe the Atlanta Falcons will win on Sunday after tough losses against the Saints and Rams. While both of Atlanta’s first two games this season were winnable neither had Atlanta favored. The Falcons had fewer star players and worse depth at nearly every position.
This isn’t to excuse the week one collapse or Marcus Mariota forgetting how to pass in week two but rather to point out this is the first game there is an argument Atlanta should come away with a win.
The Seahawks are coming off of a loss to Jimmy G. and San Francisco that reminded Seahawks fans they are likely in for the same type of season Atlanta is set up for. Winning week one for Seattle was all about who they were playing and the emotions behind it, not an indication of the season to come for the Seahawks.
With this in mind, let’s look at three crazy predictions for Atlanta in week three and who might be in for a breakout performance against Seattle.
