Seahawks defense ready to challenge Atlanta



RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley says that while the Atlanta Falcons have been more vulnerable to pressure this year, he’s preparing as though this was the same group that handily beat Seattle last December.

Bradley expects the Falcons to get back to mistake-free football.

So far, Seattle’s defensive line has been the team’s most confident positional group.

Last Sunday, the line looked particularly strong in a 13-10 win over Arizona, sacking Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb three times and harassing him constantly using multiple defensive fronts.

This week, the Seahawks will go after Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, who has already been sacked 13 times through three games after being sacked just 23 times all last season.
