Lorenzo Reyes: Falcons 16, Seahawks 13

I get that Seattle is a tough place to play, but I’ll be surprised if the Falcons are underdogs in this one. Despite not getting the result in the win-loss column, Atlanta actually has outperformed as a play against the spread, covering both their games this season. The Seahawks looked lost in Week 2, so I’m riding the Falcons, though, knowing the two teams involved, this game very well may be chaotic.

Safid Deen: Falcons 20, Seahawks 17

The Atlanta Falcons have been scratching and clawing at the surface for a late-game win early this season, falling short by a point to the Saints in the opener and by four points to the Rams last week. They’ll break through this week in Seattle, whose offense suffered greatly last week against the 49ers. The Seahawks will be inspired by their 12th-man home crowd, but I’m calling the upset here. The Falcons’ play the last two weeks will shine through this week in Seattle.

Lance Pugmire: Seahawks 20, Falcons 16 

If home-field advantage was good enough to beat Russell Willson in the opener, then Marcus Mariota should succumb, as well. Seattle’s offense has been predictably subdued, averaging less than 200 yards passing while leading rusher Rashaad Penny has just 75 yards on the ground.

Jarrett Bell: Falcons 23, Seahawks 20

Nate Davis: Falcons 24, Seahawks 20

Tyler Dragon: Seahawks 17, Falcons 14
