Falcons vs Colts: NFL Week 3 Picks & Game Predictions

The Atlanta Falcons Journey to face the Indianapolis Colts.

Who ends up having a winning record this Sunday afternoon?
Atlanta had their gut check of the season if after dominating the first 37 minutes of the contest they had to come from behind against Philadelphia at house. After dropping a third quarter lead and trailing 20-17 early at the stanza, the Falcons executed a brief pass into Julio Jones for a touchdown of 64 yards from Matt Ryan.
This was a significant success for Atlanta after doing next to nothing at Minnesota. Together with Drew Brees outside for several weeks, the team of trainer Dan Quinn gets the chance to emerge as a element in the NFC South.
Shed no tears after Andrew Luck Indianapolis walked off. Even the Colts pushed against the Los Angeles Chargers to OT prior to engineered a comeback of their own at Tennessee to square their record and falling.
The NFL chances have Indy favored by 1.5 points, how can they make it hold up?
The Indianapolis offensive line is the finest in soccer and they’re multi-skilled. They open chasms for running Marlon Mack, which is why they are currently No. 2 in the league in rushing and also their pass-blocking abilities as a group is as good if not better than any collection of the top music performer’s bodyguards.
Jacoby Brissett is not Mr. Luck, but he is not Blaine Gabbert both and is settling for the No.1 man in trainer Frank Reich’s offense. Reich has demonstrated an aptitude to really understanding the crime and having played with at this level, he understands the significance of fitting of his players’ strengths to a cohesive device.
Indianapolis is not a shutdown defensive unit, but they also force the chains to move continually and try and take advantage of mistakes that result in 3rd and punts that are long or induce.
The most significant factors about Atlanta coming into the season were can the defense make plays and will the offensive line be improved ?
The very first part of the question is a resounding”No,” together with all the Falcons averaging a mere 65 yards a game to the floor. Trailing 28-0 in Minnesota, they had to leave the run (17 carries), but there wasn’t any reason for this to be the situation when leading the Eagles in the second half and again finishing with just 17 rushes.
The Vikings pushed around quinn’s fast but light defense, but they did a far better job compared to the Eagles.
So as to knock Indy, much more balance is needed on crime and holding up against the Colts’ game that was physical is going to be a necessity.
We are siding with the Colts in their home opener.
I can’t see Atlanta quits the Indianapolis floor game for 3 quarters. And if they jam the box together using seven players and try to run up an eighth, Reich utilize Eric Ebron or endings Jack Doyle on seam paths that are heavy and will surely run play activity.
You need to respect his bevy of recipients and Matt Ryan, but without a running sport, DC Matt Eberflus could dial up blitzes to flush just sack or Ryan him.
Together with the Falcons just 3-9 ATS following a”W” and Indy 20-8 ATS at home off an upset win as a road underdog, snap up the home team.
