Atlanta has been the most consistent team in the NFL and it's due to their excellent passing game. QB Matt Ryan is having a tremendous start, as he's been utilizing Julio Jones and Roddy White. Dallas has excellent corners, so this should be a great matchup. The biggest issue for Dallas is turnover margin, which is minus 11. Tony Romo has 13 interceptions, which are not all his fault, since the receivers aren't always on the same page. Dallas is 5-15-1 ATS vs. NFC. NFL Line: Atlanta is a 4-point favorite with a total of 47.5.
