- Jets get their first victory
- Zach Wilson looks confident and accurate

On Sunday, at 9:30 PM ET, the Atlanta Falcons will face the New York Jets for an exciting Week 4 matchup in the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.
This game will be the 29th ever matchup played in London throughout history. The Atlanta Falcons are coming off a nail-biting Week 4 loss against the Washington Football Game. On the other hand, the New York Jets are coming off of an impressive victory against the Tennessee Titans. Both teams look to succeed in Week 5 and win.

Atlanta Preview: Defensive Adjustments are Necessary
After the initial three weeks of the NFL season, there are two clear concerns with respect to the Atlanta Falcons’ association. One, the offense is experiencing issues driving the ball down the field and scoring. Two, the protection is playing so poorly that Matt Ryan and the run game are having great difficulty.
The Falcons’ offense looks horrible. Matt Ryan, after the initial four weeks, presently has 707 passing yards, 8 touchdowns, 3 interceptions, and a fumble. Matt Ryan, however, isn’t the biggest issue on this Falcons offense. Last week he scored four times and never turned the ball over. However, Matt Ryan looks very stationary in the pocket because the poor offensive line doesn’t help.
On the opposite side of the ball, the defense is playing poorly too. The Falcons allowed Taylor Heinicke and the Washington Football Team to drive down the field to score and win the game. The defense allowed 34 points in total. The defense is the greater concern in this team.
Jets Preview: Zach Wilson Proving His Draft Value
Last Sunday, the New York Jets actually looked like what every Jet fan wished their team looked like every week. Zach Wilson paralleled the Titans offensive consisting of Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry point for point and he led the Jets to win in overtime against them. Zach Wilson proved many haters wrong on Sunday. He showed good accuracy on the run and he reflected a strong pocket presence.

On the other side of the ball, the Jets’ defense also looked really solid. The two siblings Quinnen and Quincey Williams made history last week. They were the only two siblings to play on the same team on the same game and both get a sack. Other than them, linebacker C.J. Mosley also is a tackling machine. The Jets have slowed the run attack from many teams.
Odds & Free Betting Analysis for This Football Game
The current spread is at 3, favoring the Atlanta Falcons. This means that Vegas predicts that this game will be very close. But personally, I believe the New York Jets run away with it. Their defense will be too much for the run-down Falcon offense and Zach Wilson will torch the poor Falcons secondary with his mobility and high IQ play.
In terms of the MoneyLine, again I believe the Jets are a lock. Unless the defense manages to pick up the slack, the Falcons are not going to win Sunday in London.
