Expert choose for Falcons vs. Jets
It’s straightforward to see why the Falcons are favored on this sport once you take a look at the quarterback depth on each groups. The Jets are already with out Wilson and should attempt to restrict how a lot Flacco performs after going by joint practices on Friday and Saturday with the Falcons.
Just a small lean right here, however I feel the Falcons will attempt to give Ridder some prolonged enjoying time. We know the bounce from school soccer to the NFL is a giant one for quarterbacks and one of the best expertise is sport time to regulate to how totally different the NFL sport is. Will Ridder succeed or throw interceptions? That’s to be decided however I just like the trio of Falcons quarterbacks.
