Gameday! The Falcons are going to hope for a massive upset on the road in snow against the Buffalo Bills, who look like one of the best teams in the NFL right now. They’ll need a terrific effort to get it, but we’d all love to see Arthur Smith and company get a signature win before the season wraps up, so let’s hope.
Here’s what you’ll need to know for the game ahead.
