This is a game that the Falcons should be able to control. The Falcons will likely come out running the ball against a Bills’ D that is allowing 165.6 yards rushing and 4.8 yards per carry. That sets up Jason Snelling to have a good game. When the Bills creep up to stop the run look for Matt Ryan to attack them deep off of play action. Roddy White could be in store for a huge game this week with safety Jairus Byrd and CB Terrence McGee both out for the year due to injury. The Bills don’t have much of a pass rush so Matt Ryan should have time to throw the ball and his main target in the passing game this week will likely be TE Tony Gonzalez.
Defensively the Falcons should go all out to stop the run and dare the Bills to throw the ball with Brian Brohm likely getting his first NFL start for the Bills on Sunday. But, the Falcons have not rushed the passer too well this season and they are allowing 254.8 yards passing per game so maybe Brohm will be able to make some plays. Without the threat of a TE doing anything in the passing game for the Bills look for the Falcons’ safeties to help over the top with Terrell Owens and Lee Evans.
PREDICTION: FALCONS 33, BILLS 13
