The Seahawks can edge the live Sunday night clash against the Falcons, live on Sky Sports.
Atlanta Falcons at Seattle Seahawks – Sunday 21:25, SS2
Sky Sports’ second live game of Sunday showcases the Seattle Seahawks hosting this year’s surprise NFL package the Atlanta Falcons. Since their opening day defeat to Tampa Bay the Falcons have gone on a four match winning streak, including a very impressive 23-16 win over the reigning Super Bowl champions in Denver last week . The Falcons offense, led by quarterback Matt Ryan and wide receiver Julio Jones, has been on fire all season but this week they’ll have their work cut out opposing one of the league’s best defences.
The Seahawks have given up just 10, 9, 18 and 17 points in their four matches thus far and are fresh off two weeks rest after a bye last week. The NFL’s first ranked offence up against the top defence is exciting enough in itself but when you add in that Falcon’s head coach Dan Quinn is the former defensive co-ordinator of the Seahawks then we have a real treat ahead of us on Sunday night.
As much as Quinn will know about the Hawks defensive capability, Seattle is a very tough place to win football matches so we expect the Seahawks to prevail by 7-12 points.
