In a Week 3 matchup between the Atlanta Falcons and San Diego Chargers, we find ourselves in a battle between two undefeated teams.The Falcons are looking to walk out of Qualcomm with a win, while the Chargers look to get their second consecutive home win of the season.The play of both teams thus far has been surprising. Each team has found ways to maximize their talented rosters throughout the first two weeks of the season, winning both at home and on the road.I, being a football guru, am willing to share with you my insight for this thriller.Let us take a look at three BOLD predictions surrounding the outcome of the game.Julio Jones catches two touchdowns and has 150 yards.In two of my fantasy leagues, Julio Jones was my only hope on Monday night. In one of the two he got me a win, in the other, not so much.It just so happens, that I only needed one point to win. If it were by any larger margin, I would've fallen short of victory. Jones only managed to catch four passes totali...

Moore helps Falcons secondary make a big statement

Falcons safety William Moore is off to a great start this season. He has stepped forward to be the enforcer the Falcons' much-maligned secondary has been looking for under head coach Mike Smith.

Atlanta Falcons: Week 3 NFL Power Rankings (#5)

Last week: 5 (+0) Record: 2-0 I wasn’t that impressed with the Falcons on Monday Night. I felt like they should have been up 20 given how badly the Broncos started and how much they turned the ball over, but they didn’t capitalize like they should have. They lost the yardage total battle and the yards per play battle and if it wasn’t for those 4 turnovers, they probably would...

Denver Broncos: despite loss vs. Falcons, lots of positives to take from game

The Broncos lost 27-21 to the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night and turned the ball over four times in the first quarter, including three interceptions thrown by Peyton Manning on the Broncos' first three drives. It was an uneven game for Manning, which put the Broncos in a deep hole that they could never fully recover from to win the game. The Broncos would have a late rally...

Falcons-Chargers Preview

The Atlanta Falcons haven't been getting much out of their running game, but Michael Turner could still play a major role in the team's 2012 success. It's uncertain if Turner will be able to play at all against his former team following a recent arrest. Atlanta will try to win its sixth straight against the San Diego Chargers and stay unbeaten on the road in this series...

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Titans @ Chargers 9/16/2012

The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly   Tennessee 10 @ San Diego 38   By Eric Judd   @ericjuddTSHQ     The Good Rosario. That’s spelled R-O- Dante Rosario. Dante Rosario might have earned himself the most money during week 2. Replacing, or even imitating Antonio Gates, has been the Holy Grail of Tight Ends.

The Blitz: Previewing Falcons/Chargers

This week on the Blitz I bring you my Atlanta Falcons vs San Diego Chargers preview. The Falcons head on the road this week to face a playoff hopeful Chargers squad. Both teams are 2-0, and neither team has shown too many signs of weakness. The Chargers really haven’t played anyone of note, while Atlanta notched a solid win a few days ago against the Broncos. All signs point...
