There are some teams that can light up the scoreboard like none other. The 3-1 Atlanta Falcons have hit that description perfectly early this season. They will look to continue that on the road against the 4-0 Denver Broncos which can play defense like few teams in the NFL this season. It is a classic contrast of offense against defense which will be worth watching all afternoon on Sunday from Denver. Which side wins? Here is a look at the matchup.
The Falcons won a shootout 48-33 against the Carolina Panthers and have scored 152 points over the first four weeks of the season. Matt Ryan has thrown for 1,473 yards, 11 touchdowns and only two interceptions for the season thus far while hitting Julio Jones for big gains quite a bit. Jones has 22 catches for 488 catches and three touchdowns. Devonta Freeman has 322 rushing yards and a touchdown while Tevin Coleman has four rushing scores. The defense has struggled all season long and it may be up to Ryan and Jones again to put up tons of points to win this game.
The Broncos won 27-7 on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to remain undefeated. Trevor Siemian has passed for 824 yards and six touchdowns but did get hurt during last week’s win and rookie Paxton Lynch had to come in. Demaryius Thomas has 21 catches for 332 yards and two touchdowns while Emmanuel Sanders has 25 catches for 293 yards and three scores. C.J. Anderson has been a great change of pace with 252 yards on the ground to go with three touchdowns. The defense will have their hands full with Ryan and Jones in their biggest test of the season.
