It is time. The Falcons will usher in the toughest stretch of their 2017 schedule beginning with the Minnesota Vikings today at home, seeking an eighth win, a statement victory over one of the NFC’s top contenders, and the positioning that comes with that as Atlanta finishes up with four games against the NFC South. If they lose, they’ll be able to keep going with a reduced margin of error, but if they win, things will be going very well indeed.
Use this as your open thread for today’s games, and go Falcons!
