Oakland Raiders at Atlanta Falcons: Preview and Predictions

The Oakland Raiders are rested and ready, coming off a bye and heading to Atlanta to take on one of the better teams in the league in 2012 in the Falcons. 

Matt Ryan is having his best year as a pro and has been able to kill teams in any number of ways. The one thing the Falcons have had to worry about on offense is keeping Ryan upright. For as great as this team has been throwing the ball downfield, they continue to give up way too many hits and sacks. 

For the Raiders, you have to think they'll watch the tape of the Washington Redskins running all over the Falcons and start to drool about the possibilities they have with Darren McFadden. 

In the video above, we look at the big matchups and predict the score. There's no doubt that this should be a Falcons victory, but like the 49ers in Minnesota or the Packers in Indianapolis, the NFL has repeatedly taught us that every team has a chance every week. 

Let us know in the comments who you think the big-time players will be in this matchup, what the score will be and where you agree or disagree with the above.
