The Atlanta Falcons have capped off five straight losing seasons, but there’s hope that those middling years are set to be left behind. Bolstered by an influx of talent and playing a fairly soft schedule in a weakened NFC South, the Falcons look ready to make some noise this season.
It all begins with a matchup against the Carolina Panthers, a team going through their own rebuilding arc after dumping coach Matt Rhule last season. Set to trot out a new, highly-touted rookie quarterback and with a new-look coaching staff, Carolina wants to contend right away, though those dreams will have a tough early test against this Falcons team.
Planning to watch the game? Of course you are. Here’s everything you’ll need to know to do so.
