Over at ESPN, nine of 13 experts picked the Falcons to top the Broncos on Monday night, but the Pick 'Em crowd seems to favor the Broncos. Seth Wickersham, who went a ESPN Experts best 12-4 in Week 1, picked the Falcons.

Just three of the eight expert writers at CBSSports.com have the Falcons winning the game; however, the site's prediction machine has the Falcons favored in the matchup. Josh Katzowitz, who went a CBS Sports experts best 11-5 in Week 1, chose the Broncos, like most of his colleagues.
