How to watch Falcons - Seahawks in Week 1

Atlanta’s looking for a big win to start the season against a fellow NFC contender.

NFL: OCT 27 Seahawks at Falcons

Two days from now, we’ll be watching Falcons football. That’s good stuff.

The first matchup of the year pits a quality Seattle Seahawks team, one that might compete for the NFC West crown, against Atlanta in Mercedes-Benz Stadium. There are some worrying names on the injury report, but the Falcons have to be able to show they can slow a quality offense and take advantage of a less-than-stellar defense, or this is likely to be a long season.

Here’s how you can keep up with Sunday’s game.

Atlanta Falcons vs. Seattle Seahawks, Week 1

When: Sunday, September 13, 1:00 p.m. EST

Where: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, Georgia

Channel: FOX

Announcers: Adam Amin, Mark Schlereth, Lindsay Czarniak

Streaming: FOXSportsGo

Radio: 92.9 The Game

Key Questions: Is this new-look Falcons defense good enough to put the brakes on one of the league’s better offenses? Will Dirk Koetter and company be able to put together a balanced, effective offense for 2020, beginning with this game? Can Matt Ryan out-pass Matt Schaub?

Prediction: Falcons win, 28-24
