Falcons Vs. Seahawks Expert Picks: It's Unanimous- Atlanta To Win

For the first time in 2011 NFL analysts are united in their opinion of an Atlanta Falcons game. Despite being on the road in a hostile environment there's no denying that the Falcons have a major edge when it comes to talent. Seattle are rebuilding... we think, it's not clear in what direction the Seahawks are headed, but for Atlanta their sights are clear- Superbowl or bust. 

Peter Schrager of Fox Sports has little faith in the Falcons' offensive line, but still likes them to win

This season, Matt Ryan has been sacked 13 times and hit 21 times. Last season, he was sacked just 23 times. I wasn't buying Atlanta as a Super Bowl team in August, and I'm not buying them now. But I think they'll have their way with Seattle on Sunday.

Over on ESPN there was much less waxing about the game, and just picks. A unanimous eight analysts all pick Atlanta, the accuscore is picking them and fans are picking the Falcons. There's absolutely no faith in Seattle from the four letter network.

The story remains the same on CBS where everyone is also backing the Falcons.

The folks at Yahoo feel the same with Michael Silver, Jason Cole and Les Carpenter all favoring Atlanta.

So, all in all it's a red and black-out. My pick: The Falcons are able to take Seattle out to the woodshed as they demolish them on both sides of the ball. Tavaris Jackson will be on the run, and Michael Turner will run over them.

Atlanta 35 - Seattle 17
