Atlanta Falcons coach Arthur Smith summarizes the challenges of the Seattle Seahawks attack

The Atlanta Falcons share many similarities with the Seattle Seahawks.

Over the past decade, the Hawks have faced the Seahawks twice in the NFL Playoffs, with the first winning both times.

Entering this season, both teams have had new faces in the middle after trading their staples. As a result, both franchises have often found themselves in the same spot in many pre-season power ratings—down the barrel.

For the Falcons, Marcus Mariota replaced Matt Ryan, now with the Indianapolis Colts, under center, while Gino Smith filled the same spot in Seattle previously held by Russell Wilson, now with the Denver Broncos.
