We’ve known who the Atlanta Falcons’ opponents are in 2020 for a while now, but now we know when the games will take place. The Falcons’ 2020 schedule has been officially revealed, and can be found below.

The Falcons will open the season against the Seattle Seahawks, a tough matchup but one they’ll get to face at home. Overall, the first half of the season is pretty balanced with home and away games, with a Week 10 bye that ensures the Falcons will get some rest before the final seven games of the season.

Fortunately, they get Tampa Bay late in the year when it’s possible Tom Brady is breaking down a bit, but their final stretch will be pretty brutal, with back-to-back road games against the Bucs and Chiefs. In total, they’ll spend four of their final five games of the season on the road. We’ll have to hope they win early and often to help with that.

The full schedule is below.
