I didn't actually realize until I read the artcile on AF.com that mentions it, but apparently we dont have any back to back home or away games this season.

http://www.atlantafalcons.com/schedules/schedule.html

Not only that, but we apparently travel the fewest miles in the league this season.

That seems to be more of a footnote though, we still have away games in KC, San Diego, Philly, and Detroit but they're always after going home. No more haggard road warriors. That and we get to deal with Denver, Dallas, and the G-men at the dome.

Thoughts?

Hopefully we don't have a repeat of when the last super bowl champs face us again and destroy us a second time. I do like the bye before the Eagles game, that should help a lot.

Another thing is that we get the Giants at home which means no bad weather.

KC away is going to be a tough one an unfortunately it's our opener for the season.

Then week 2 we face Denver for our home opener. Every ATL fan has a slight hatred for Denver since '99....

So, if we can get past those two games...we look better than we all expected.

Looking at the schedule, I'm expecting anywhere from 10 to 12 wins. Key will be staying healthy (isn't it always?). More than ever now though imo. I really think this just might be the team to go all the way. Stay healthy and get hot at the right time. I see Ryan taking that next step, Julio exploding, and the defense making some improvements.
