The schedule will be released at 7 p.m. ET on both the NFL Network and NFL.com. We’re getting a treat this year, seeing as last year’s schedule was released in May.
The Falcons host Arizona, Dallas, Denver, New York Giants, Oakland and the rest of the NFC South. The Falcons go on the road to face Detroit, Kansas City, Philadelphia, San Diego, Washington, and the rest of the NFC South.
Just from looking at the opponents, I think the games versus Carolina, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, New York, New Orleans, and Philadelphia, are primetime candidates. The Falcons will certainly have at least one primetime game.
Once the schedule is released, I’ll provide my projection for the season.
