How to watch Falcons vs. Football Team in Week 4

Two 1-2, largely scuffling teams meet to try to get a little momentum going. Will Atlanta build on their last minute triumph over the Giants?

We’re going to find out soon whether that Week 3 win over the Giants was the spark that will start a roaring fire of winning, or just a match lit in the pouring rain. A win here lifts the Falcons to .500 and gives them a little bit of swagger to carry forward, while a loss—especially a loss because the offense is still spinning its tires—will only reinforce the questions we already have.

I for one am ready to embrace a brighter future, so I’ll be hoping Atlanta can cobble together a complete effort and put us somewhat at ease. The win against the Giants was extremely welcome, showing this team is capable of digging deep late in a game instead of wilting, but it was a better foundation than a statement victory for a team finding its way. Hosting a reeling Football Team, Atlanta has the chance to earn that W while doing more and doing better.

Here’s what you’ll need to know for Sunday’s game. Go Falcons!
