The Falcons come into tonight’s game with a 5-4 record, good for third in the NFC South, behind the Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints. The Falcons dominated the Dallas Cowboys last week 27-7, behind Adrian Claiborne’s six sacks. Atlanta’s offense has struggled this season following a strong 2016 season, as they are currently 16th in the NFL, averaging 16.9 points per game.
The Seahawks come into tonight’s game with a 6-3 record, good for second in the NFC West, 0.5 game back of the Los Angeles Rams. Seattle defeated the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday Night Football last week, 22-16. Although the 6-3 record, the team has now lost two of their best defenders, as Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman will miss the rest of the season with injuries.
The Seahawks come in as 3.5-point favorites.
