Seahawks: Matt Ryan is out for the Falcons and Matt Schaub will get the start. This team has been sloppy even with Ryan in and Schaub is not a quarterback who will win you many games in the NFL at this point. Atlanta’s defense has been one of the worst in the NFL and has only generated 5 sacks, so even without one of Russell Wilson’s favorite weapons in Will Dissly, Seattle should be able to move the ball and win this game. Seattle off a loss is also 18-8-2 ATS (69%) the last 5 years.
Texans: Oakland has a bottom 5 pass defense and just let Aaron Rodgers throw all over them with Davante Adams out. They also struggle defending RBs in the pass game, so Duke Johnson has a favorable matchup. Houston off a loss needs this game at 4-3 and Watson will have plenty of chances to score and force Carr to keep up with him.
