Falcons ready for long trip to Seattle

The storyline
A win here puts the Seahawks in prime position to win the NFC West, even despite that awful outing in San Francisco. The Falcons are not nearly as crisp on the road, and this environment will be another nice little learning experience for Matt Ryan.

Why you should watch
This game should provide a heavy workload for Michael Turner. Seattle has been pretty resilient after getting drubbed this season. If the Falcons do slip up, their meeting with the Saints in Week 16 could take on even greater importance.
