Russell Wilson started his season with a bang, passing for 322 yards and four touchdowns. Wilson has dominated the Falcons since losing to them in the divisional round of his rookie campaign. In his last five regular-season games against Atlanta, Wilson has passed for 10 touchdowns to just one interception. His career passer rating against the Falcons in the regular-season is 114.6, his second-highest career passer rating against any NFL team.

Rolling In The Dough

The Falcons still have a long way to go before they can be considered legitimate contenders. More than three years have passed since the Falcons collapsed in Super Bowl LI and they remain stuck in mediocrity. Atlanta's inability to compete with Seattle in the second-half was a flashback to their struggles last season against elite competition. The Falcons lost six of their nine games against winning teams in 2019.

If you had wagered $100 on all three of BetQL's picks in this contest, then you would have profited $270.00!
