It’s nearly here, everyone. You’ve waited all offseason to see this exciting Falcons team, which has been recognized here and elsewhere as one of the most talented in Atlanta history, in actual game action. The offseason was actually pretty interesting and positive, for a change, but I’m still very ready for this.
You’ll want to catch up on our Jets insight, learn more about key story lines tonight, and follow along with Kevin and Eric’s play-by-play for the game. And, of course, you’ll want to discuss the game here with your friends, as is custom. There should be plenty to talk about, even if we’re only going to see the starters for a very short time.
Enjoy the game, everyone. As always, we’ll have plenty of recaps, insights and more after it ends late this evening.
