Falcons Season Preview
CONFERENCE TITLE DEFENSE BEGINS
Lions, Packers and Bears, oh my! Atlanta begins its quest to defend the NFC crown by taking on the three NFC North opponents right out of the gate, before running through an incredibly difficult mid-season stretch that includes Miami, New England, Carolina, Dallas, Seattle and Tampa Bay. The Super Bowl LI rematch comes in Week 7, and a date with the NFC's best in the regular season -- Dallas -- awaits the Falcons in Week 10.
