3 Reasons to believe the Atlanta Falcons will beat Seattle
By Nick Halden
2. Atlanta’s playmakers
As good as Seattle might be at receiver the Falcons have an argument they are better when it comes to the depth of playmakers. Kyle Pitts hasn’t had a good game as of yet and still, Atlanta has been in both games they played against the Saints and Rams. If Patterson, Pitts, and London can all be producing at the same time the Atlanta Falcons are capable of blowing the Seahawks off the field even with Mariota in as their quarterback.
Marcus is far from a franchise quarterback but he is a better option than Geno based on his resume and ability to consistently make plays with his feet. Mariota will be the first mobile quarterback the Seahawks have had to contend with considering Wilson refuses to leave the pocket at this point in his career and Jimmy G. had to take over for Trey Lance last Sunday.
That is a wrinkle that will put pressure on the Seahawks’ defense just as it did in week one against the Saints and set up a potentially big game for the Atlanta playmakers. Pitts is far too talented to continue to struggle as he has to start the season continued production from London and a big week three from Pitts should be enough to push Atlanta past an average Seattle defense.
