Atlanta Falcons Betting Analysis
The Atlanta Falcons saw a little light after defeating the Minnesota Vikings by 17 points lead to picking up their first win of the season. They seemed to be getting their groove but fell short by just a point to the Detroit Lions, 22-23. This team had a good start with a touchdown from D’Andre Swift but the defensive line allowed two consecutive touchdowns from their opponents. They managed to chase the lead and led by two points with 3:16 minutes left in the final period. A touchdown by the Panthers hurt them and a late comeback with TJ Hockenson getting a TD pass from Matthew Stafford in the final seconds but time ran out on them.

In their previous encounter with the Falcons, they won that game by seven points and controlled most of the game. At one point, they led as much as 13 points at the end of the first half and just paced their way through the victory.
