Fresh off a triumphant win over the defending Super Bowl champions on the road, the Falcons will take on another one of the league’s elite teams in the comfort of that team’s home stadium.

The Seahawks are coming off a bye week, are extremely tough to beat at home, and have given the Falcons some trouble in recent years, and it goes without saying that they’re still one of the better teams in the NFL. For all that, Atlanta is rolling right now on offense, looks like they may be coming around on defense, and is playing the kind of fast and physical football former Seattle defensive coordinator Dan Quinn loves. This is a game they can win, though predicting they will with any real confidence is tough.

Here’s the rundown on the game ahead.
