The 49ers and Falcons kick off the early game today. These are arguably the best two teams in the NFC this season so this should be a great matchup.
The key for the Falcons is their front seven. They need to contain Kaepernick and not let him run wild on the defense. They don't have to stop him but hold him in check. If the Falcons defense can do this, they'll have a chance to walk away with a win.
The key for the 49ers is their pass defense. They have to keep Jones, White and Gonzalez in check in they are going to win this game. The 49ers front seven can put pressure on Ryan and hopefully give the secondary a chance to make some stops and get turnovers.
One thing we've learned watching the NFL over the years, things don't always go as we predict.
I'm sticking with the 49ers for this game but it'll be interesting.
