The Atlanta Falcons just unveiled their 2023 schedule, a slate that sees them at home for four out of their first six games and once again light on primetime opportunities.
The team will open up against the division rival Panthers and will face off against the Packers, Lions (on the road), Texans, and Commanders at home in the first six weeks, with a London game against the Jaguars the only non-home game in that stretch. The middle of the season sees them facing rebuilding squads in Tennessee, Minnesota, Tampa Bay, and Arizona before a Week 11 bye that leads into their remaining four divisional games, as well as the Jets, Bears, and Colts.
Overall, it looks like a manageable schedule on paper, one where the Falcons have an opportunity to get off to a hot start if they can handle some of those not-too-difficult home matchups. If they excel and Bijan Robinson and Tyler Allgeier grind several teams to dust on the way, chances are this is the last season for a while where the Falcons won’t be appearing in primetime. Chances are that they’ll face the Panthers or the Saints late in the season (those two to-be-determined times below) in primetime, if not both, but for now they’re all afternoon games as far as we’re aware. They do not have a single Thursday night game.
