The Falcons were embarrassed by the Detroit Lions last Sunday, especially on offense, but the Lions did just do the same thing to the Packers team Atlanta edged past in Week 2. Perhaps the Falcons will prove that Week 3 was just a frustrating moment in time, and they’ll get on track in a big way against the Jaguars.
Did you enjoy that optimism? I know I did. Here’s what you’ll need to know to watch this game and find out if Atlanta justifies that optimism or not, with a note for those out of market on the importance of ponying up for a subscription ahead of time if you don’t want to scrounge for a stream.

Out of market, you’ll need ESPN+ or Disney+. Yes, you have to pay for a separate subscription that you might not have to watch the Falcons for one week. No, I’m not happy about it either.
