6. Seahawks record seven sacks

No, there’s no reason to make that big of a deal over the Seattle Seahawks coming up short at home last weekend against the Baltimore Ravens since this was only one game, and this team still deserves to be viewed as a top contender in the NFC.

If anything, the Seahawks should view this situation as a way to improve moving forward, and luckily Seattle has the perfect bounce back opportunity with a favorable matchup on the road against the Atlanta Falcons.

A few weeks ago, a meeting between the Seahawks and Falcons had the potential for all sorts of excitement, but Atlanta made it clear this week they’re about to throw the towel in on the 2019 season by trading Mohamed Sanu to the New England Patriots.

After looking at all the sacks the Los Angeles Rams were able to record during their Week 7 win over the Falcons, one can only imagine the kind of field day the Seahawks are going to have on Sunday.

Seattle’s defense struggled for the most part to keep Lamar Jackson in check last weekend, but no matter who is under center for the Falcons, expect the Seahawks to bounce back if the unit has a strong afternoon.
