The 2022 NFL season is finally here and the Week 3 schedule is chock full of exciting showdowns. One of the most anticipated matchups of the week is a battle of two bird teams as the Atlanta Falcons face the Seattle Seahawks.

The Falcons have now lost two straight to open the schedule, picking up a 31-27 loss to the Los Angeles Rams last week. The Seahawks didn't have much to cheer about in Week 2 either, losing 27-7 to the rival San Francisco 49ers.

Neither team is pegged to have much success this year, meaning a Week 3 victory is crucial. Do the Falcons have what it takes to notch their first 2022 victory? Or will the Seahawks spoil that hope in front of the Lumen Field faithful?

Here's what projection models and experts across the industry have to say about the Falcons vs Seahawks Week 3 matchup.
