For the first time since 2017, the Falcons have a winning record. Atlanta topped Carolina 24-10 on Sunday, starting the 2023 campaign off on a positive note. Read on for Falcoholinks to kick off your Monday morning.
Falcons - Panthers recap
It was not a pretty win by any stretch of the imagination, but the Falcons came away from its season opener at 1-0. Safety Jessie Bates introduced himself to Atlanta by snagging two interceptions and forcing a fumble.
Given quarterback Desmond Ridder’s line of 15/18, 115 yards, and a touchdown, there’s certainly plenty to work on ahead of Week 2. For now, however, the Falcons have a winning record.
