Falcons vs. Jets Week 5 open thread

We’ll hope for good things today as Atlanta takes on New York abroad.

NFL: London Games-City Views Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons come into this game missing several key pieces and sitting at 1-3. They’ll get a Jets team that is one of their easiest matchups of the year on paper, but whether they’ll be able to earn a win in front of a huge crowd in London remains to be seen.

We’ll be watching them do it a bit earlier than usual, as the game kick offs in about a half hour. We’ll hope the return of Kendall Sheffield will prove to be a positive and that the offense and defense can overcome the loss of key contributors like Calvin Ridley and Isaiah Oliver, because it would be awfully nice for team and fans alike to see the Falcons win one heading into their early bye week.

Go Falcons! Use this as your open thread for the game ahead.
