Falcons vs Lions Betting Preview

Two undefeated teams will face off in one of the better games Sunday. The Lions are 2-0 for the first time since 2011 and have been one of the better run defenses in the NFL, But, they haven’t faced an offense like this yet. The Falcons got the ground game going against Green Bay as Freeman rushed for 84 yards and two touchdowns.

The Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has passed for 414 yards and 6 touchdowns in two games. Running back Ameer Abdullah had 86 rushing yards on Monday Night’s 24-10 win over the New York Giants. This has been part of the reason that Stafford doesn’t have that many passing yards yet. The Lions have been able to run a balanced offense so far.

Falcons vs Lions Prediction

Both teams have highly paid quarterbacks for a reason. Games like this. Neither defense will be able to shutdown the others offense for an entire game. The game might start off a little slow as each team will attempt to get the running game started but, eventually one will open it up. Once one teams starts to throw it deep the other will follow. I have both quarterbacks going over 300 yards and at least 2 touchdowns.
