These are the five toughest games that the Atlanta Falcons will have to play in 2017, analyzing the schedule.
Football is finally back, and the light representing the start of the season has finally shined through the tunnel. After seven grueling months of no football and then a month of the great tease that is the preseason, fans everywhere are thrilled that we’ve gotten things started again
Atlanta fans are more eager than most to have football back, after the heartbreak suffered in the last game of last season.
The schedule is out there for all to see. The Falcons enter the season with the 13th toughest schedule in the league (and toughest in the division). Last season the birds had the hardest schedule in the NFL heading into the year, but still finished atop the division at 11-5.
Every year when the schedule comes out, the really hard games jump off the page. These are the games which present the big game appeal, and which are normally slated on national tv for all to see. It should be no surprise that four of these five games featured on this list will be featured on national television.
The Falcons have aspirations of repeating as NFC South champions. Going 3-2 or better against the teams on this list will be a boon to their chances of doing just that.
