How they see it: Pundits Picks


*Each week contributing writer Daniel Cox examines the NFL experts and their Falcons picks and compiles it all to see who believes the most in the Atlanta Falcons. *

Of the 10 NFL experts (and one computer), there are two that are very high on the Atlanta Falcons as they enter a Week 3 showdown with the New Orleans Saints.

Chris Mortensen and Ron Jawarski both have picked the Falcons each week so far this season. Though the Falcons let them down in Week 1's loss to the Steelers, they've both remained committed to Atlanta through three weeks.

The only other forecaster that selected Atlanta this week in his picks is Adam Schefter, who learned his lesson last week. He picked against the Falcons in Week 2's game with the Cardinals and may now be on the bandwagon.

Everyone else, including Accusore, ESPN's computer that runs over 10,000 simulations of a game with every scenario and condition imaginable, went with the Saints this week after picking the Falcons in Week 2.
