LISTEN: Can Falcons Get First Win This Week?

Locked On Falcons: Falcons vs. Giants Crossover Week 3 Preview with Locked On Giants

One thing is certain pertaining to Sunday's game between the Atlanta Falcons and New York Giants: One team is going to win its first game of the season. That is, of course, if the two teams don't tie. But let's not throw that out into the universe.

The Falcons and Giants both took positive strides in Week 2, as the Falcons scored 25 points against a revered Tampa Bay Buccaneers' defense, and the Giants were an offsides call away from winning a divisional game on the road against the Washington Football Team.

This week is a winnable game, for both teams. The Giants are favored by just a field goal, but it's typical for the home team to get a bit of an edge in a betting line.

Expect an extremely even and hard-fought football game Sunday, with one team happy to get its first win and the other left to ponder 0-3.
