NFL Week 9 picks, predictions:

The Arizona Republic: Falcons 28, Chargers 24

Jeremy Cluff writes: "The Atlanta Falcons are 4-4 and lead the NFC South. They are just finding ways to win. They'll find a way against in Week 9." Bet the Falcons with the points vs. Chargers

Bill Speros writes: "Keep an eye on the first-place Falcons, who are 4-4 straight up but 6-2 ATS. Atlanta has already beaten San Francisco at home this season, nearly beat Tampa Bay, and cheated death twice against the Panthers in Week 8. The Chargers playing an early East Coast game on Pacific Time looks like easy prey for the Dirty Birds. Especially as home underdogs."

Draft Kings: Take the Falcons on the moneyline vs. Chargers

It writes: "It’s not Justin Herbert’s fault that he’s playing through injured ribs, but it’s certainly affecting an offense that LA relies on to make up for a defense that currently leads the NFL in yards allowed per carry. The Falcons have been shockingly productive recently, and if they’re able to continue at the level of play that has brought them to the top of the NFC South, I think this is a winnable game for Atlanta."

Fansided: Go with the Falcons vs. Chargers in Week 9

Josh Yourish writes: "Justin Herbert is clearly the best quarterback in this game, but an injury to Mike Williams takes away another one of his weapons. The Chargers have been reluctant to push the ball downfield and they will do it even less without Williams. I like this spot for the Falcons even though they’re banged up."
