Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season is finally upon us. We survived through a pandemic, a sports depression, and a whole bunch of other crazy antics to reach this point. Each game this weekend will be exciting, particularly when the Seattle Seahawks face off against the Atlanta Falcons. Fans could see a few novel storylines coming out of this matchup.
The Seahawks will need to make the most of each of the outings on their schedule considering they are in a loaded NFC West division. The 49ers will look to win the division yet again, but the Rams and Cardinals each appear positioned to pull off a bounce-back season.
It won’t be easy in the NFC South in 2020 either. The Falcons fell short of making the playoffs last season and a terrible start to last year’s campaign played a pivotal role in that. They must get off to a better start this go around to be successful.
Stars headline the Atlanta-Seattle confrontation, especially stars appearing in new places. This Week 1 matchup will mark the debut of both Jamal Adams and Todd Gurley in new destinations. Who will come out on top?
With that, let’s take a look at five bold predictions for the Seattle Seahawks vs. Atlanta Falcons matchup in Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season.
