3 Crazy week three Atlanta Falcons predictions
By Nick Halden
3. A.J. Terrell picks off Geno Smith and shuts down Seattle receivers
While this would have been the norm for Terrell last season and not a crazy prediction there is no way around the fact that Terrell has struggled early this season. Michael Thomas in week one terrorized Terrell late in the game and was pivotal in New Orleans coming back. Early in the game, last Sunday Cooper Kupp was beating Terrell with what looked to be surprising ease. While there is no shame in losing to either receiver Terrell is going to head into this game with extra motivation.
Terrell isn’t known as a ballhawk but he is an elite corner who is more than capable of shutting down any receiver in this league. Going against Geno Smith and the Seattle offense is exactly what A.J. needed in week three.
A huge game from Terrell is going to help Atlanta shut the Seahawks down in the second half in route to a big Atlanta Falcons week three win.
