The Lions were riding high after upsetting the Chiefs to open the season, but they came back to Earth in Week 2 after losing to the Seahawks in overtime. Jared Goff and the offense looked strong, but they could be without starting RB David Montgomery, who hurt his leg against Seattle.
They’ll have a tough test against the Falcons’ strong running game.
The Falcons needed a last-minute field goal to defeat the Packers, but their offense improved immensely from Week 1. Rookie stud RB Bijan Robinson is a broken-tackle machine while Ridder finally rediscovered Drake London in the passing game.
The Falcons are four-point home underdogs. Take the points!
Pick: Falcons +4
