We’re nearly there! The Falcons are playing the Chargers today, and they’ll be wearing some sweet duds that closely resemble the ones you see in the featured image for this article. More importantly, they’ll have a chance to run their record to 5-2 and potentially increase their lead in the NFC South further if the Saints lose to the Chiefs (likely) and the Buccaneers lose to the 49ers (less likely).
To do so, they’ll need to get past a potent Chargers offense and avoid costly mistakes, like the interception and fumble that helped doom them versus Seattle a week ago. This is a much, much easier game that’s taking place in the Georgia Dome, but that doesn’t mean you should take it likely.
As always, talk about the game here. We’ll embed some Tweets below for those who can’t watch live, and the game info is below that.
