We are one hour away from Week 4’s Falcons game, an opportunity to get off to the hottest start since the 2015 season, but with a much more talented roster. I’m pretty excited about this one, even if I’m a little wary of the Bills defense.

Atlanta’s playing under a closed roof this time around, giving the Falcons a familiar setting for their second-ever home game in Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Their opponent is a better-than-expected Buffalo team that has yet to face an offense this good (and with the exception of Denver, a defense this good), which bodes well for the Falcons. With any luck, they’ll get out of this one 4-0 and healthy in time for their Week 6 tilt against the Miami Dolphins.

As always, this is your open thread! Use it. Love it.
