The Atlanta Falcons will aim to earn their fist win of the season when they visit the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3 NFL action. The Falcons' fourth quarter comeback against the Los Angeles Rams came up just short in Week 2. Atlanta scored 24 points in the second half, but it wasn't enough in a 31-27 loss.
Meanwhile, the Seahawks came crashing back down to earth in a 27-7 Week 2 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Seattle managed only 36 yards on the ground and quarterback Geno Smith averaged just 8.2 yards per completion. Nothing was working on offense for head coach Pete Carroll.

Falcons vs Seahawks Prediction & Pick
This one could go either way. On one side, the Falcons have lost by a combined four points through the first two weeks and proven they have what it takes to compete. On the other side, Seattle got the job done at home in a Week 1 win over the Denver Broncos and should not be underestimated here.
When it comes down to it, give me the team with more playmakers on the roster. Rookie wide receiver Drake London has racked up 160 yards and 1 touchdown on 13 receptions through two games and running back Cordarrelle Patterson is averaging 5.0 yards per carry in 2022. The Falcons win this one.
Final Score Prediction: Falcons: 21 | Seahawks: 17

The stats back up a Falcons win here as well. Atlanta is 4-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last five games against Seattle and 6-2-1 ATS in its last nine away games overall. Head coach Arthur Smith's team has shown that it can go into a raucous environment and handle business on the football field.
Atlanta is going to be desperate for a victory here as an 0-3 record diminishes their playoff hopes in a massive way. This is Mariota's chance to showcase why he deserves the starting role and why backup Desmond Ridder should not be considered this season. His big performance brings home the W.
Bet: Falcons Moneyline (+108)
