The Falcons play in the NFC South with interdivision games against the NFC East (with no Romo), interconference games against the AFC South and strength of schedule games against the 49ers and Vikings. That has to be one of the easiest schedules in the history of the current format.

0-3 to 4-3
But the Falcons are not very good at football. I'm happy to do a $50 Jimmy Fund bet that they do worse than 13-3 if anyone is interested.

I'll take that bet; not because I have any strong feelings for the Falcons, but because I want to help sick kids.
 
Falcons finish with 13 or more wins: StupendousMan donates $50 to the Jimmy Fund.
Falcons finish with 12 or fewer wins: Oil Can Dan donates $50 to the Jimmy Fund.
 
Deal?

Weird feeling the Saints pull the upset tonight
 
Dunno about that, but I'd consider the Saints +4; already teased them to +11 with the over at 45.

Okay, okay, so I failed reading comprehension today.   Let me try again:
 
 
Falcons finish with 13 or more wins: Oil Can Dan donates $50 to the Jimmy Fund.
Falcons finish with 12 or fewer wins: StupendousMan donates $50 to the Jimmy Fund.
 
Will you accept these terms, Mr. Oil Can?

I would've seriously considered not taking the penalty there. This defense is a sieve in the secondary.

"The Falcons technically didn't have a turnover, they had a turnover on downs."
 
Uhhh...

Only good thing for Atlanta is they have a chance to do something right away. A three and out here would be very difficult to overcome.

Nothing kills the happy feels of a great ST play like bringing up Steve Gleason repeatedly.

Coaches should be teaching players to knock down passes behind the LoS that are clearly blown up.

Browner was hot and cold last year, depending on matchups, but 50-year old Roddy White should be a good matchup for him.

Well he has nine penalties so that's not working either.

Bengals & Falcons are the biggest paper tigers. Yeah, everyone's whooping it up for the Bengals but barely beating the always road-weary Seattle team in OT does not qualify as turning the corner.
 
And the Falcons are losing to a ready-to-implode Saints team.

Ben Watson is a UFA in 2016. If they cut ties with Chandler, I can definitely see Watson coming back.
