Yes the Falcons will 3-4, well at least in my mind. Here are my reasons why:
Matt Ryan is locked in. This guy refuses to fail. He plays well with pro-bowlers and without pro-bowlers. He is an expert at diagnosing a defense, just watch him at the line of scrimmage when he makes his audible.
Tony G – I expect he will have a good game. 8 catches 96 yards.
Steven Jackson. He is back and I think he is 100 percent. He will run with anger and he will be a factor catching the ball out the backfield.
Rodgers – Don’t be surprised that Steven gets attention but Quizz still has a few big catches.
Receivers by committee – im not sure if any 1 receiver has a big game because I think we will have to dink and dunk our way downfield. Arizona defense is good at all 3 levels. I think as a group they pull in 250 yards to go with Tony G’s 96 for a total of over 300 yds.
Defense – Yes I said it defense. The defense is getting better. But whats even better than that the Cardinals offense is terrible. The Falcons are decent against the run, and should be able to stop Carson Palmer.
For these reasons I predict the Falcons put together a complete game in this one and win 34-14.
How do you feel about the Falcons chances to get closer to .500?
