5. The game was close, but it was not really that close Lions fans might find solace in the fact that they were able to come just a few inches away from a victory over the defending NFC Champion Atlanta Falcons, hinting that they are inching closer to really becoming championship contenders. But the reality of the situation is the game really was not very close. Atlanta out-gained the Lions by over 100 yards, lost the turnover margin by three including a pick-six, fell victim to a phantom holding call on 2nd and 30 on an interception that would have ended the Lions final...Continue reading »

Whew.. another tight win for the Atlanta Falcons yesterday over the Lions. The six-pack is gone, along with the heart medication bottle. It was a game where the outcome didn’t even look significantly close on the stat sheet, but literally came down to a few inches on the field. September 26th, 2014. The Falcons battled the Lions on Sunday morning in London. A game where the Falcons gave up a double-digit lead and gave the Lions a chance to win on field goal in the closing seconds of the game. However, with :02 seconds left on the game clock and the Lions down by...Continue reading »

Last Sunday night, the Falcons obliterated a hopeful Packers team, temporarily silencing the talk of a Super Bowl hangover. After all, they are just the fourth Super Bowl loser in this last seventeen seasons to start the year 2-0. The following night, Detroit manhandled the Giants on the road leaving the impression that this year they could be for real. Both teams come in on high notes, but Detroit stand the team with the most to gain. This will be their first true test for their defense all season, and it does not get much harder than...Continue reading »

The Falcons are coming off a humongous high after smashing the Packers in a rematch of last season’s NFC Championship game. Not to mention it was the first ever regular season game in the immaculate, $1.5 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium. It was a night to remember as Atlanta jumped out to a 31-7 lead early in the third quarter, squashing all the offseason talk about a Super Bowl hangover. Atlanta and Detroit are two out of just three NFC teams to start the season 2-0 and are arguably the two best teams in the NFC at this point. Green Bay may find there way back to...Continue reading »

Within the last year, the Atlanta Falcons and the Green Bay Packers have gone head to head three times and we’ve witnessed two of the best quarterbacks in the league trying to outplay the other. Recently, success has definitely been on Atlanta’s side as they have conquered Green Bay the last three meetings. It is worth noting all three meetings have taken place in Atlanta. Sunday night the Falcons once again were able to put a stop to the high-powered offense ran by Aaron Rodgers. Since Matt Ryan was drafted in 2008, the Falcons have played the Packers eight...Continue reading »

5. Hello, Pass Rush The Falcons expected to have a noticeably more complete defensive line coming into the season. They showed flashes of it in week one, sacking Mike Glennon three times, but were still far too inconsistent. However, Chicago features one of the league’s best offensive lines. Green Bay does not and was without both of their starting tackles for this prime time matchup. It was a situation the Falcons defense should have taken advantage of, and they made the most of it, slaughtering Aaron Rodgers throughout the game. The most promising thing about...Continue reading »

A month after reporting he was likely a lock to return, AJC’s Jeff Schultz is now reporting that Brian Snitker’s future with the team looks murky. Jon Heyman has also been on the record saying that the Braves are assessing the managerial position and that internal options Ron Washington and Bo Porter are being considered. This surely does not appear to bode well for Snitker’s future with the team. While Snitker could easily be retained somewhere within the system, it is looking less and less like he will return. It is hard not to like the guy after...Continue reading »

Last year’s NFL sack-leader has gotten off to a fantastic start to his 2017 season, recording a sack in the season opener and then coming up with arguably the biggest play of last night’s game, a sack fumble that resulted in a Falcons touchdown to open up the third quarter. Not too long after though, Beasley appeared to be in serious pain after multiple lineman fell on his legs. He was helped off the field and never returned, but given the state of the game, there was no need for him to. The Falcons did not appear to be too concerned after the game and reported...Continue reading »

Atlanta Falcons Vs. Green Bay Packers Location: Mercedes-Benz Stadium – Atlanta, Georgia Time: 8:20 ET Week two features one of the juiciest matchups of the NFL seasons between two former league MVPs. Matt Ryan versus Aaron Rodgers has turned into one of the best quarterback battles in the modern era. Don’t believe it? Go through the incredible numbers these two guys put up when they face each other, and the amount of times these two teams have met up with season’s on the line. Atlanta and Green Bay met twice a season ago. The Falcons won both of them...Continue reading »

As arguably baseball’s top prospect is knocking on the door of the majors in Ronald Acuna, the Braves find themselves with a nice problem to have: they have a surplus of outfielders. Last offseason, we saw the front office deal Mallex Smith for an elite pitching prospect due to the presence of Ender Inciarte. Given Acuna’s quick rise to stardom, it has always been a matter of time until the team would explore moving veteran corner outfielders Nick Markakis and Matt Kemp. Jon Heyman reiterated just that in a report today that claims the team will shop them...Continue reading »
