Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Throughout the year we ask questions of the most plugged-in Atlanta Falcons fans and fans across the country. Sign up here to participate in the weekly emailed surveys.
The Falcons are on top of the NFC South, and they’re heading into a stretch of the schedule packed with winnable games. They take on the Titans (2-4) in Nashville this week, welcome the Vikings (3-4) to Atlanta in Week 9, and then take on the Cardinals (1-6) in Arizona in Week 10. Then they’ve got the benefit of the bye before facing the Saints (3-4) at home in Week 12.
The Jets in New York, Bucs in Atlanta, Panthers in Charlotte, Colts at home, Bears in Chicago, and Saints in New Orleans round out the rest of the 2023 schedule. Not one of those teams is over .500 right now (especially the Panthers). I could see the Falcons splitting with the Bucs and the Saints, and weather could be a factor in Chicago on New Year’s Eve, but every single one of those games is winnable — but only if the Falcons limit mistakes, the offensive line holds up, and the defense can rattle these quarterbacks.
We have two questions for you this week: What do you think the Falcons’ record will be at the bye? And how confident are you in the direction of the Falcons?
Take the survey below, and let us know why you responded the way you did in the comments. Check back later this week for the results!
