NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

You know we’ve got your links of the Falcons variety teed up for your Wednesday morning.

Five things we learned

The Falcons notched their first win of the season on Sunday, besting a Seahawks team on their home turf. Each game is full of takeaways and lessons, and we learned exactly five in Atlanta’s victory over Seattle.
