3 Clear advantages for the Atlanta Falcons in week three
3 of 4
2. Russell Wilson
More than anything, the Atlanta Falcons can relax knowing they won’t have to face the Super Bowl XLVIII champion, Russell Wilson. Wilson led the Seahawks to two consecutive Super Bowls from 2013-2014. Wilson established his dominance over ATL with his 114.6 passer rating, 1,319 passing yards, and 10 touchdowns throughout his entire career versus the Falcons.
The Wilson-led Seattle team won 4/5 matchups against the Falcons. Needless to say, Russell always left his mark when he played Atlanta.
Fortunately, the veteran QB took his talents to Denver. It goes without saying that the bulk of Seattle’s success came from Russell Wilson. The Falcons should capitalize on this opportunity and step up their defense.
