Atlanta Falcons News
This season the Atlanta Falcons will play regular season home games versus the Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins and Dallas Cowboys. On the road they’ll play the Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, New England Patriots, New York Jets and Seattle Seahawks.
As the NFL draft approaches, the Atlanta Falcons are considering trading their No. 31 selection with Seattle. The move would help Atlanta to have access to a top-rated pass rusher, but they’ll likely have to give up their fourth-round pick to seal the deal. As the defending NFC champions, the Falcons have a lot going for them, but are looking to tighten things up defensively moving into the upcoming season. Prospects could include safety Jabrill Peppers and defensive ends Jordan Willis, Charles Harris or Forrest Lamp. The Falcons will be back on the field at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Saturday, Aug. 26, against the Cardinals. Tickets for that game and all others in the 2017-2018 season can be purchased now.
