In their first meeting since 2019, the Falcons and Rams are in very different places. Los Angeles is fresh off a Super Bowl win and trying to avoid the kind of post-championship lull that has been so common in NFL history, while the Falcons are trying to finally get out of neutral after four straight losing seasons.
We’ll hope Atlanta can surprise and win this one, but we’ll have to wait a little longer than usual to do so, as this is a late afternoon game tomorrow. Here’s what you’ll need to know to watch Falcons versus Rams.
Atlanta Falcons @ Los Angeles Rams, Week 2
When: Sunday, September 18, 4:05 p.m. EST
Where: SoFi Stadium, Inglewood, California
Channel: FOX 5 locally; NFL Sunday Ticket nationally
Announcers: Kevin Kugler, Mark Sanchez, Laura Okmin

Odds: Atlanta’s a 10.5 point underdog at the moment
Key Questions: Is Atlanta capable of pulling off an upset, i.e. was last week’s improvement real? Is the Rams’ offensive line going to be able to rally after an awful performance last week? Will the Falcons be able to put the brakes on Aaron Donald?
