Ahead of the Week 8 matchup between Seattle and Atlanta, Falcons Wire managing editor, Matt Urben, answered three questions for Seahawks fans.
Up to this point, the Falcons’ biggest problem has been getting
off to slow starts. They’ve trailed by at least two scores at the half
in four of their first seven games. It could easily be a fifth if they
can’t slow down Russell Wilson and Chris Carson early. Atlanta needs to come out aggressive by throwing to set up the run. Converting on third downs to keep the game close will be key as well. If the team can do that and avoid another early deficit, it has a chance to end Seattle’s road winning streak.
