The Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks meet Sunday in week 3 NFL action at Lumen Field. The Atlanta Falcons look to avoid their second 0-3 start in the last 3 years. The Seattle Seahawks look to get a game above a .500 record.

The Atlanta Falcons have split their last 10 road games. Marcus Mariota is completing 62.7 percent of his passes for 411 yards, 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Drake London and KhaDarel Hodge have combined for 255 receiving yards and 1 touchdown, while Olamide Zaccheaus has 6 receptions. The Atlanta Falcons ground game is averaging 45.5 yards per contest, and Cordarrelle Patterson leads the way with 161 yards and 1 touchdown. Defensively, Atlanta is allowing 29 points and 361 yards per game. Richie Grant leads the Atlanta Falcons with 16 tackles, Grady Jarrett has 1.5 sacks and Mykal Walker has 1 interception.

The Seattle Seahawks have won 4 of their last 6 home games. Geno Smith is completing 81 percent of his passes for 392 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception. Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf have combined for 206 receiving yards on 23 catches, while Colby Parkinson has 2 receptions. The Seattle Seahawks ground game is averaging 56 yards per contest, and Rashaad Penny leads the way with 75 yards on 18 carries. Defensively, Seattle is allowing 21.5 points and 403 yards per game. Jordyn Brooks leads the Seattle Seahawks with 23 tackles, Uchenna Nwosu has 1 sack and Tariq Woolen has 1 pass deflection.

The Falcons are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 road games. The Seahawks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 6-13 ATS in their last 19 vs. NFC. The over is 6-2 in Falcons last 8 games in September. The under is 20-8 in Seahawks last 28 games overall. The Falcons are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The road team is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings.

The Atlanta Falcons have been competitive through 2 games, but their defense falls apart when it matters most. The Falcons are 24th in passing defense and 28th in scoring defense. The Seattle Seahawks have issues of their own, mainly with a lack of running game, but they also still have one of the best home field advantages, and it's still a tough place to play for visitors. We're still feeling these two teams out, but Seattle has to have the edge because of home field. It may be an ugly game, but I'll grab the Seahawks in this toss up.
