Atlanta Falcons vs. Dallas Cowboys NFL Week 2 Picks
The Atlanta Falcons got off to a strong offensive start. But they forgot to play defense in their opener. That’s a worrying sign moving on. The Dallas Cowboys lost to the Rams in their seasonal debut. However, the defense was there for the most part. They were able to get some ground success against a decent defensive front. The Falcons don’t have the defense in the trenches that the Rams have. Hence, the Cowboys should be able to complete drives and get more points on the board. While the Cowboys lines are always swollen, you should take this number just under a full touchdown.
