The Falcons are now 3-1 after a 48-33 win over Carolina at home in which Falcons QB Matt Ryan threw for 503 yards and four touchdowns. WR Julio Jones caught 12 of those passes, including one for a touchdown; he racked up 300 yards on the day. The Falcons have now scored 93 points in their last two games.
After earning a 27-7 win in Tampa Bay, the Broncos are one of three undefeated teams left in the NFL (along with Philadelphia and Minnesota). Rookie Paxton Lynch filled in admirably for the injured starter Trevor Siemian, passing for 170 yards and a touchdown. The defense held the Buccaneers to 215 yards while forcing three turnovers.
Denver is a 6-point favourite for this contest, as we go to press. They’re 3-2 SU and ATS in their last five meetings with Atlanta, and the Falcons are 2-3 SU and 2-2 ATS in four trips to Denver since 1982.
