Game Analysis & Picks
The defending Super Bowl Champions were humbled in their home opener, losing 31-10 to the Bills. The Falcons squandered a 16-point 4th Quarter lead to come up short against the Saints. Kyle Pitts was outshined by Drake London, who chipped in with 5 grabs for 74 yards in his rookie debut and showed a strong connection with Marcus Mariota. The Rams sputtered with a scoreless 2nd Half against the Bills, as Cooper Kupp was the lone bright spot of the night for Los Angeles.
The Rams are clearly the more talented team on paper, but the Falcons played with a gutty resolve in the season opener, sparked by the consistent play of Cordarrelle Patterson who finished with 120 yards rushing and a score. I think the Rams bounce-back with a more complete effort in Week 2 and get the win, but the Falcons have the offensive talent to go blow-for-blow in this one. These teams are both primed for success attacking downfield and should easily combine for the Over (46.5). I think the Rams win outright but the Falcons can hang tight and cover the spread (+10).
