The Atlanta Falcons head west to take on the Super Bowl Champs Denver Broncos!!! If you’re anything like me you’re nervous as hell. Wondering how the Falcons will fair against the Broncos.
Without any further ado, let me give you my keys to victory.
Offensive Key – Establish the run
Falcons offensive line is playing great. But they are going against the NFL’s leading sack team. If they want to keep Von Miller quiet. Establishing the running game has to be top priority.
Expect to see a heavy dose of Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman in both running and short passing game.
Defense Key – Must establish Pass Rush
With Sean Weatherspoon on IR… Deion Jones De’Vondre Campbell out with ankle injuries. First round pick quarterback Paxton Lynch making his NFL debut.
Falcons cannot afford to play poorly. They need Dwight Freeney and Vic Beasley have to have their best game of the year… If not!!! CJ Anderson and that Broncos rushing attack will have a field day.
Falcons are the number one scoring offense in the NFL.
Denver Broncos have the NFL’s 4th ranked defense.
Something has to give.
Will the Falcons continue to disappoint their fan base by losing another BIG game?
Will they do what no one expects them to do…. Defeat the Super Bowl Champs in Denver?
What are your thoughts?
Game starts at 4:30 pm CBS
