After winning only one divisional game last season, the Falcons already have an opportunity to surpass their win total. A Sunday afternoon clash against Carolina is going to give us a better idea about this team. After dominating two below-average defenses, the offense will be tested against a much stronger unit. Reigning NFL MVP Cam Newton is going to be coming as well.
The Falcoholic’s David Walker joins Falcfans’ Aaron Freeman and I to preview this intriguing matchup. We examine the Falcons’ pass rushing problems, which includes lengthy discussions about Vic Beasley and Bryan Cox. Safety and offensive line play is examined as well. After last week’s quiet game, David remembers a wide receiver named Julio Jones and talks about him playing a far bigger role on Sunday.
