Atlanta Falcons Preview Against The Seattle Seahawks

The Atlanta Falcons have had a rough start to the season so far. They Suffered a horrible loss to the Chicago Bears but bounced back in Week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles at home on the day Michael Vick returned to the Georgia Dome as a starter but on the opposite sideline. Then in week 3 they suffered a 16-13 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Falcons made a lot of key errors and mental mistakes which cost them the game. As they travel to Seattle this week to play the Seahawks, they look to build momentum heading into the game against the Green Bay Packers next week in the Georgia Dome. Seattle, (1-2 this season) have a key advantage with the crowd being the 12th man. We may have beaten them last season but after what the Seahawks did to the New Orleans Saints in the playoffs last year they showed they can compete with the teams in the NFC South. Some of the keys to winning this game is for the offensive line to step up and give Matt Ryan time to throw. Thats one of the things that killed us against Tampa Bay last week. Another thing is to get the run game going with Michael Turner. We should keep on getting JaQuizz Rodgers in the mix as a 3rd down running back. Roddy White needs to make plays when they count. Last week White dropped a pass in the red zone on the five yard line that could've gave Atlanta a 17-16 lead late in the 4th quarter. Julio Jones has already proved that he can be a big playmaker. Matt Ryan should keep on feeding him the ball. Tony Gonzalez has been nothing but great so far this season and expect for him and Matty Ice to pick apart that Seahawks defense on Sunday. A key matchup is cornerback Marcus Trufant covering Roddy White. Our defense needs to step up and make plays. We cant offord penalties like going offsides that can be factors in the game. Our secondary also needs to step up. Daunta Robinson and Brent Grimes need to give Tavaris Jackson a hard time putting the ball in the right spot. Defensive ends John Abraham and Ray Edwards need to constantly get in the backfield and not give Jackson any time to throw. I feel that we're going to get the win this game and get the momentum we need going into the Green Bay game in the Georgia Dome next week.-Yuriy
