No Change in Seahawks-Falcon Line Despite Loss of Coordinator

The Seahawks-Falcons Line was holding steady at Seahawks -2.5 over the past 48 hours despite Seattle losing their special teams cooridinator. 

Brady Henderson ESPN of ESPN.com:

"Seahawks special teams coordinator Brian Schneider has left the team indefinitely for personal reasons, a significant development with Seattle's coaching staff just before Sunday's season opener. Pete Carroll made the announcement Friday without elaborating on why Schneider is stepping away. Larry Izzo, the longtime Patriot, will take over in the interim. Izzo has been Seattle's assistant special teams coach the past two seasons. He spent the previous two as Houston's special teams coordinator."

The Falcons are favored to win 8 or more regular season games while Seattle is priced at -115 on both the Over and Under 9.5.

These teams are certainly well acquainted with each other. 

Atlanta coach Dan Quinn used to be the defensive coordinator in Seattle, so he's got a good feel for his former employer. Likewise for the Seahawks, who are quite familiar with Quinn's tendencies.

If that wasn't enough, this will be the fifth meeting in five seasons between the teams.

"We've seen these guys before," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. "We pretty much know their staff, and they know us too. It's not like there's a brand-new coach and it's the first game and we haven't seen anything."

They have split wins and losses over their last four meetings.

As a result of the pandemic, the Falcons have opted to exclude fans for their first two home games.

"It's definitely going to be different," Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan said. "But I think the intensity level will be there. When you look at other sports -- what's gone on in basketball, what's gone on in hockey, what's gone on in baseball -- the quality of play has been really good. The intensity has been there."
