OUR PREDICTION: People keep doubting the Falcons and they keep winning, especially as underdogs. They've been a dog for four straight weeks and won outright in every one of those contests. Kyle Shanahan is doing an excellent job exploiting new mismatches, whether it's with Julio Jones, Tevin Coleman or his tight ends. Plus, Matt Ryan is playing at a MVP level and despite this being yet another tough matchup, the Falcons should be able to hang within seven points of the Seahawks this afternoon.
