Atlanta Falcons vs. Washington Redskins Preview and Predictions

Josh Zerkle@JoshZerkleChief Writer IIIOctober 1, 2012

Is this the year that "Matty Ice" becomes a superstar? Some say he's a good quarterback, but he's been blessed with some amazing weapons around him, like Julio Jones, Roddy White, Michael Turner and Tony Gonzalez to name a few. After watching Matt Ryan lead the Falcons past the Panthers in Week 4 in dramatic fashion, it's hard to argue against the Falcons QB.

Speaking of dramatic fashion, RGIII showed he's beyond his years in poise as he led the Skins to a last-second win in Tampa, completing three straight passes in the game-winning drive. The Redskins need to find some consistency, but for now, they are on a roll. They are riding RGIII and a surprise running game led by rookie Alfred Morris.

The big question in this game will be if the Redskins can slow down the high-octane offense of the Falcons. If Washington can continue to run the ball, they may have a shot.

Check out our video above and let us know who you think will win this game.
