Bold Predictions: Atlanta Falcons v. Denver Broncos
Sunday, Denver Broncos face Atlanta Falcons in week 5 matchup at home. Falcons’ holes on defense allow many offensive targets to excel.
Denver Broncos rookie quarterback, Paxton Lynch entered the Tampa Bay Buccaneers game last Sunday and passed the first test of his NFL career, but this Sunday comes the first of possibly many in his young career. Lynch will face a defense in the Falcons ranked 29th in total defense and 31st in pass defense. Both statistics will give Lynch openings in every part of the field with Virgil Green returning and the wide receivers can separate from the defensive backs to gain big plays.
The Broncos defense continues to succeed in forcing turnovers against offenses and quarterbacks. Aqib Talib intercepted Jameis Winston twice last weekend and will now face Julio Jones, who is motivated after his 300-yard receiving performance versus the Carolina Panthers. Jones will not have 300-yards against Talib or the rest of the Broncos’ secondary, it is a fact.
Matt Ryan has the highest total quarterback rating (QBR) and passing yards entering Sunday. It will be the toughest offense the No Fly Zone and Orange Rush in the early part of the 2016 season. Head coach stated the Broncos did not face a bigger wide receiver group in the Buccaneers, but now with Julio Jones in town, the Broncos defense will be asked to continue the trend.
Week five bold predictions are officially a go.
