4. Drake London has 200 yards receiving

Drake London was the top wide receiver selected in the 2022 NFL Draft, and so far, he’s made the Falcons look smart for that pick in just two games. London has 13 receptions for 160 yards in the Falcons’ first two games of the season, but I’m thinking he’s going off for even more in Week 3.

As in, a lot more.

I’m calling a huge shot here that London takes over the game as the Falcons travel to Seattle to play against the Seahawks. This will be the rookie’s big coming out party as he racks up over 200 yards receiving against Seattle with the Falcons coming away victorious.

3. Jimmy Garoppolo strip-sacked twice vs. Broncos

Trey Lance had season-ending surgery to repair his broken ankle and the 49ers suddenly look like geniuses for not trading Jimmy Garoppolo to the highest bidder back in March or April, or at all. Having Garoppolo on the roster could be massive for the 49ers as this season progresses. He’s undoubtedly a safer option out there than Lance at this point.

But against the Denver Broncos, on the road, Garoppolo is in for it. The Denver Broncos have five forced fumbles as a defense already this season. The pressure off the edge has been getting home the first two weeks and I think Garoppolo is going to have a tough time with the likes of Randy Gregory, Bradley Chubb, and Baron Browning.
