Falcons vs. Seahawks prediction:

Matt Ryan has lived up to his nickname of "Matty Ice" for the majority of the year, but it's never easy going to Seattle to take on the Seahawks.

Seattle is coming off of a bye week and will look to make a statement against one of the top teams in the NFL at this point of the season. Atlanta pulled off a win at Denver last week, but they aren't as lucky this week in Seattle.
