In about a half an hour, the Falcons will kick things off against the Green Bay Packers in Week 2. If Atlanta wants to get off to a rip-roaring start and show the NFC they’re for real, this would be an excellent win, given that Green Bay is a better and more talented opponent on paper than the Carolina team they just finished beating.
To do so, the Falcons will need to run well (we can probably check that one off), improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their passing game, and show up defensively early on. I like their chances, but then, I am a Falcons fan.
Use this as your open thread for the game, and forever and a small eternity after that, go Falcons!
