In a bit of disappointing news to some, Atlanta has been put at a disadvantage before the season even starts.
Since the Falcons’ 17th game is an away game at TIAA Bank Stadium in Jacksonville, the Falcons will now have ten games on the road compared to only seven at home. The Falcons were supposed to play the Broncos in London in 2020 before the COVID-19 pandemic. Though the date and opponent that Atlanta will play in the game is unknown, we know can narrow it down to non-division opponents — the Patriots, Jets, Eagles, and Washington Football Team.
Opponent isn't known yet but Atlanta will be the home team and will play a non-division opponent. Atlanta home options in 2021 are New England, the Jets, Philadelphia. Washington and….Detroit.
The Falcons and Lions played in London at Wembley in 2014.
