Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Wednesday, Oct. 27

What are ya buyin’? What are ya sellin’? (The answer is Falcoholinks).


The Atlanta Falcons are looking toward a Sunday clash with the Carolina Panthers and potentially seeing a winning record for the first time in what feels like eons.

Lots of post-win links and some roster moves in today’s Falcoholinks.

Moving on from Miami

The Falcons moved their season record to an even 3-3 with a hard-fought win against the Dolphins — one that gave us further insight into who this team is, and what they actually can be.

There was clearly an early identity crisis with this team, and with five games under their belt heading into Miami it seems like they’re starting to figure out their respective roles — especially tight end Kyle Pitts. RB/WR/KR Cordarelle Patterson saw more snaps than RB Mike Davis and continued to display his versatility in a brand new offense.

We’ve got our weekly polls up for the offensive player of the game (which ... should be clear) and the defensive player of the game, and we’ve got the key takeaways from a critical win against the Dolphins.

Three up and three down from that road win.

We’ll round out the Miami trip with some hat tips & head-scratchers and The Falcoholic Podcast’s latest episode.

Roster moves!

Right tackle Kaleb McGary has rejoined the active roster after a stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list, so he should resume his starting spot on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. Atlanta also released veteran corner T.J. Green, who may wind up on the practice squad at some point.

There were also some shifts on the practice squad, including the addition of DL Nick Thurman.

Fantasy studs and duds
