ESPN NFL Picks with Jeff Ellis: Week 4

14 of 15

Aug 15, 2013; Baltimore, MD, USA; Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White (84) during the game against the Baltimore Ravens at MD

New England @ Atlanta
The New England pass defense is ranked 6th because the haven’t played a team with a current passing offense ranked better than 17th. The Falcons passing offense is ranked 7th and they’ll be playing home so I’d like to pick Atlanta to win. However, both starting wide receivers, Roddy White and Julio Jones are listed as questionable. If they are both out of the game then I am going with New England. If at least one of them plays then I take Atlanta.
