Atlanta is favored by three points in a battle of two talented offenses.

The Atlanta Falcons are 4-0 after the Carolina Panthers couldn't hold on for the Sunday upset. Next up is the Washington Redskins and their high-flying offense, led by Robert Griffin III.

After wins for both teams on Sunday, the Falcons open as three-point road favorites.

Atlanta has been a smart pick so far this season, sporting a 3-1 record against the spread, including a 2-0 record on the road. Meanwhile, Washington is 2-2 overall against the spread.

Despite the Falcons being undefeated and the Redskins even in 2012, their offensive production has been very similar. Atlanta is scoring 31 points per game, while Washington is averaging 30.8 ppg.

The difference has been defense, where Atlanta's 19 ppg is far superior to Washington's 30.8 ppg.

The Falcons and Redskins last played in 2009, when Atlanta won at home, 31-17.

Kickoff for Sunday's game is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET at FedEx Field.
