Falcons are on a quest to get back to the playoffs sitting behind first place 8-2 (God I hate saying that), 7-3 Carolina Panthers. 6-3 Seattle Seahawks squad will be without LOB members Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor Monday Night on ESPN.
But how will get it done? Here are my keys to victory.
Contain Russell Wilson
1. Must stop Russell Wilson from making plays with his legs. He’s Seahawks leading rusher 290 yards so holding contain, tackling is a top priority. Cannot allow Wilson to buy time to get the ball to Jimmy Graham and Doug Baldwin.
Keep an eye on Vic Beasley, Brooks Reed. If they do well keeping Wilson in the pocket, Falcons should come out with a victory.
Spy Deion Spy
2. Deion Jones is without a doubt has the most difficult job of any Falcons player. Keeping Wilson from having a big day is no easy task. He’s one of best in the league improvising and creating plays for his team.
Deion Jones for the most part will be assigned to Wilson for the game. His speed, tackling, and awareness will be tested to max…
Seahawks are missing tackle newly acquired Duane Brown so that means defensive player of the week Adrian Clayborn will go again yet another back up tackle.
But…. The key to the game is Deion Jones. He has to play his best game of the year.
Forget the BULLSH*T Get Julio the ball.
3. As I stated earlier Seahawks will be without LOB members Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor so Matty Ice must focus on making Seattle prove their depth is as good as they think they are.
From the very beginning of the game Falcons must attack the secondary. That means getting Julio Jones involved early and often.
That’s not all, Taylor Gabriel will be an X-Factor in this game. With Kam Chancellor bring out I don’t think Earl Thomas can do everything. He’s going to need help and I don’t think Seattle has enough DBs to match up with the Falcons recievers.
I expect a lot of deep shots in this game.
Final Thoughts – Atlanta improves to 6-4 and wins 24- 16
