Week 3: Chargers (-3) vs. Falcons


Chargers -3

The Falcons have to travel cross-country here on a short week after playing on Monday night.  The Dirty Birds are 2-0 and look like world beaters right now, but they have consistently looked like world beaters at home for the past few seasons.  Look for this to be a letdown spot for them.  Another team that is consistently good at home is the Chargers.   Last week the Chargers gained 148 yards on the ground, and that has been Atlanta’s weakness on defense, giving up 270 rushing yards and 4 rushing scores in their first 2 games.   On the other hand, the Chargers have only given up 41.5 yards per game rushing, which could spell trouble for the Atlanta O, which will possibly be without Michael Turner.   Atlanta has won their first two games by creating and capitalizing on turnovers.  The Chargers have only turned the ball over once this season, and if they avoid coughing the ball up again on Sunday, they win easily.
