The Atlanta offence should hold all the aces in Sunday's evening Sky Sports NFL clash.
Kansas City Chiefs at Atlanta Falcons – Sunday 18:00, Sky Sports 2
Sky have made a good choice for Sunday's first live NFL game as they bring us live coverage from Atlanta where the (7-4) Falcons will host the (8-3) Kansas City Chiefs. This is a big game for both teams and their playoff aspirations; the Falcons have a one game lead in the NFC South while the Chiefs currently sit second in the AFC West.
Both teams are coming into this game on the back of good wins last week and the Chiefs especially impressed, winning a titanic game 30-27 in Denver against divisional rivals the Broncos.
The Falcons offence has been the stand-out feature of their season and even when star receiver Julio Jones has a quiet week, like he did in last week's win over the Cardinals, other receivers like Taylor Gabriel step up to the plate, helping them score another 38 points.
It's hard to see how this Chiefs offence can keep up with the Falcons away from home and even with Justin Houston returning, we don't see their defence stopping the Atlanta offence. The current total Falcons points line looks too low, so we’ll take them to cover 26.5 points, and comfortably.
