Seattle Seahawks vs Atlanta Falcons 09/13/2020 – The Seattle Seahawks are coming into this season with high hopes after holding a promising run last year that ended in the NFC divisional playoffs. They are starting their season by battling the Atlanta Falcons this Sunday, September 13. The match will be held at the Mercedez-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. Fox will be covering the game live and they will be starting live coverage at 1:00 PM Eastern Time. For those who want to watch the game through live stream, SofaScore will be the best place to visit. NFL Betting Lines see the Seattle Seahawks holding a very small advantage over the rebuilt Atlanta Falcons.
The Seattle Seahawks are looking to get back to another Super Bowl appearance as their season ended in the hands of the Green Bay Packers last year in the NFC Divisional Playoffs. They will be relying much on MLB Bobby Wagner. He is one of the best players in the NFL and will be anchoring the stingy defense of the team.
In the offensive line, you have QB Russell Wilson running the show and much will be expected from him to have better decisions but he has WR Tyler Locket as the team’s main option to give them a lot of yards and touchdowns. Seahawks also have HB Chris Carson and WR DK Metcalf boosting that offensive line.
Players to watch:
R. Wilson QB (GP 16 CMP 341 ATT 516 CMP% 66.1 YDS 4110 AVG 8 YDS/G 278.3 LNG 60 TD 31 INT 5 SACK 48 SYL 319 QBR 71.2 RTG 106.3), J. Gordon WR (GP 5 CMP 0 ATT 1 CMP% 0 YDS 0 AVG 0 YDS/G 27.8 LNG 0 TD 0 INT 1 SACK 0 SYL 0 QBR 0 RTG 0), C. Carson RB (GP 15 ATT 278 YDS 1230 AVG 4.4 LNG 59 BIG 8 TDS 7 YDS/G 82 FUM 6 LST 3 FD 75), R. Penny RB (GP 10 ATT 65 YDS 370 AVG 5.7 LNG 58 BIG 4 TDS 3 YDS/G 37 FUM 1 LST 1 FD 16), T. Lockett WR (GP 16 REC 82 TGTS 110 YDS 1057 AVG 12.9 TD 8 LNG 44 BIG 15 YDS/G 66.1 FUM 1 LST 0 YAC 314 FD 53).
The Atlanta Falcons had a tough season last year, finishing with a 7-9 record. They hope things will change as they push for an appearance in the playoffs. WR Julio Jones is the best player of this team and he is expected to give the team that huge option in the offensive line and he will have Alex Mack protecting him as the team’s center. Matt Ryan is the team’s quarterback and he will be tasked to make the decisions and give Jones the passes that he needs. It sill be exciting to see how Todd Gurley adjusts to his new team and blends in with the Falcons’ system. Anchoring the defense will be big man Grady Jarrett who is at Defensive Tackle.
