Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Wednesday, Oct. 21

Fact: A.J. Terrell cracks walnuts with his knuckles.

Happy Wednesday, Falcoholics! You’re halfway through another week. Congrats! Pat yourself on the back, grabbed an ice-cold adult beverage of your choice, and grab a seat. You deserve it.

Our links are made fresh and never frozen. Actually, you know what, that’s a lie.

A.J. Terrell nabbed his first interception last weekend, earning a nomination for Pepsi Zero Sugar Rookie of the Week. And Eric Robinson had 4 takeaways for the Falcons following Week 6.

Carter Breazeale knows that the hat tips get jealous of the head scratchers and vice versa, so he made sure to give out plenty of both yesterday.

The Falcons will face off against the 2-3 Lions this weekend, and we’ll get our first look at their new gradient uniforms.

The Falcons experienced some shuffling of their practice squad yesterday, saying goodbye to two players and welcoming another two. This week’s “fantasy stud and dud” is a can’t-miss. So don’t miss it!

Kevin Knight gave credit where credit is due in his latest column, noting that the Falcons finally lived up to their potential in their win against the Vikings on Sunday. Meanwhile, Evan Birchfield’s weekly stats piece was heavy on offense this week, but that’s not a bad thing. It’s just the natural consequence of Julio Jones and Matt Ryan being really good at football.

Give Dave Choate’s breakdown of the Week 6 snap counts a read, because if you don’t, he’ll probably relapse and the other writers just don’t need that in their lives right now. And last but not least, tell us about your favorite Falcons-Lions memory?
