Fresh off an inspired road victory over the defending Super Bowl Champion Broncos, the Atlanta Falcons are riding a towering wave of momentum.
However, at 3-1 (2-0 home record) the feisty Seattle Seahawks have found offensive firepower of late.
Speaking of offense, both the Falcons (37.7 ppg) and Seahawks (32 ppg) have lived in the end-zone since tasting defeat. Atlanta leads the NFL in both ppg (35) and total yards (333.4) per contest.
However, the key ingredient in this pivotal week six matchup is defense. Seattle is the league’s third-best defensive unit (13.5 ppg allowed). Can the Seahawks parlay home-field advantage, a burgeoning offense, and stingy defense to derail Atlanta’s momentum?
The answer to this question is crucial in deciding which team can ascend during the season’s second half.
Last Sunday, Atlanta’s high-octane offense blitzed then undefeated Denver early, en-route to a signature 23-16 victory.
All of the Falcons’ moving parts were in proper order opposite rookie QB Paxton Lynch. An anemic Atlanta pass rush jolted to life, viciously penetrating Denver’s inert offensive line to record 6 sacks on Lynch. OLB Vic Beasley accounted for three of his teams’ QB grabs.
The coaching genius of Dan Quinn was on full display as Atlanta effectively utilized the I-formation to befuddle Denver’s vaunted defense.
Pro Bowler Matt Ryan threw for an efficient 15-of-28 completions, with one touchdown, while controlling pace. Ryan’s favorite target was running back Tevin Coleman.
Coleman caught four passes to notch 132 yards and a touchdown. Devonta Freeman led the rushing attack with 88 yards on 23 carries.
With successive wins over Denver and Carolina, the Falcons have swept last season’s Super Bowl representatives.
After averaging just 10.5 ppg in their first two outings, dynamic QB Russell Wilson has engineered an explosive passing attack amid Seattle’s winning streak.
During the Seahawks’ 27-17 road triumph against the Jets, Wilson dominated New York’s secondary to the tune of 309 yards and three touchdowns.
Wideout Jimmy Graham reeled in six receptions for 113 yards, as Seattle’s top-ranked defense preserved a 27-17 victory.
As mentioned, Seattle’s main weapon is a stifling defense.
The Seahawks have held opponents to an NFL-best 264 yards per game on the season. Pete Carrol’s gritty bunch also ranks within the league’s top-eight in passing and rushing yards allowed.
When combined with a much-improved offense, suddenly Seattle has the look of a dangerous team.
NFL Betting Trends:
- Atlanta is 4-1 ATS in its last five games
- Overall, Atlanta is undefeated (3-0) on the road this season.
