Poll: What’s your record prediction after seeing the 2021 Falcons schedule?

Does Atlanta have an easy road to a winning season, or are they still not good enough to make noise in 2021?

The Falcons 2021 schedule is out, and there’s plenty to react to. Atlanta has just one primetime game, just 7 true home games, and a frigid January matchup with Buffalo to prepare for, not to mention their first ever Week 18 game coming against the hated Saints.

We’ll talk about all of that—we’ve already talked about a lot of it—but now I’m interested in your gut feeling about how many wins the Falcons will end up with in 2021. Having seen the schedule, plus the bulk of the offseason’s moves, will Atlanta manage to improve on their 2020 finish under Arthur Smith? Will they flirt with playoff contention? Hell, if you’re bold, will they win the NFC South.

Debate away in the comments, but be sure to vote in the poll below, too. We won’t hold you to a guess this early in the year, but I am wondering how high optimism is running with what doesn’t look like the world’s most difficult slate ahead.
