The less said, the better, because Falcons football is kicking off in about ten minutes and you want that to wash over your like a tidal wave.
A win today gets the Falcons to 1-0 for the first time in a little while, shows they can beat a tricky NFC contender, and prevents us from getting super depressed to kick off the year. We’ll be rooting hard for them in a winnable game, and we hope you’ll do the same right here in our first open thread of the year.

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

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
