Injury Update

The Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks both are looking to find themselves during this NFL Week 3 matchup in what could be a transition year for both teams. Each team has a new starting quarterback and will have a number of changes throughout the lineup.

Falcons vs. Seahawks Betting Preview

Looking at the NFL matchup of Falcons and Seahawks stats from last season won’t help much when it comes to evaluating this year’s game. 

Both teams traded away quarterbacks who were long-time fixtures for the franchise and wanted to use this year as a way to pivot toward the future. The Atlanta Falcons will have someone starting with playoff experience, at least.

Former first-round pick Marcus Mariota joined the team in the offseason and is hoping to recapture some of the forms he had with the Tennessee Titans. 

Anyone making NFL picks can see Mariota showed flashes of being a strong player under center, but things soured for him after his first few seasons. What Atlanta has around Mariota will have a large role in his success or failure.

With wide receiver Calvin Ridley suspended for the year, the Falcons are hoping that first-round pick, Drake London, will be able to step up and fill the void. 

For Falcons at Seahawks betting analysis, Seattle also finds itself in the middle of a transition away from Russell Wilson at quarterback.

While NFL odds and NFL stats may not indicate a strong future, the Seahawks decided to bring in Drew Lock as Wilson’s replacement.

Lock, a former second-round pick, never quite clicked in Denver. Lock passed for 4,370 yards in three seasons. Lock has never started more than 13 games in a season and passed for a career-high 2,933 yards during the 2020 season.
