The Atlanta Falcons (0-0) meet the Chicago Bears (hey, also 0-0) on the gridiron.

The Atlanta Falcons kick off the season in an hour, at long last, and will hopefully be leaving Chicago 1-0 and ready to dominate for the following 15 games. Whatever the outcome, I am legitimately happy to have football back.

The Bears have home field advantage, a strong front seven and capable offensive line, and a dangerous running back in Jordan Howard. The Falcons have advantages almost everywhere, however, and are the easy favorites here. Let’s hope they can put together a strong enough performance to put that Super Bowl hangover talk to rest...unlike the Patriots.
