Falcons vs Seahawks

Falcons Podcast Episode 26: Seahawks Preview

by Michael Aprile

The birds are back in town! On this episode of the Rise Up Reader podcast, Mike and Cory discuss the (5-4) Falcons’ chances of beating the Seattle Seahawks (6-3), a team that’s piling up injuries but still has Russell Wilson, a QB that’s 10-1 in primetime games at home under Pete Carroll.

The two discuss:

  • Taking Flight: Has Sark had an awakening or was his stellar performance against Dallas an aberration? How will the Falcons attack Seattle’s defense likely without Devonta Freeman?
  • Clay’s Big Day: With Seattle planning to play their fourth left tackle of the year, can Adrian Clayborn take advantage once again and have another monumental day?
  • Predictions: We take a stab at who will win this game and what the score will be.
