The NFL schedule is set to be released today at 8 p.m. EST, and the Atlanta Falcons will appear in four nationally televised games, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Ledbetter has the New England Patriots (home), Green Bay Packers (away), San Francisco 49ers (away), and Seattle Seahawks (home) games as the four nationally televised games. It makes sense for each of those games to be nationally televised, although I’m surprised that one of the games against the New Orleans Saints was omitted.
Last season, the Falcons had the same amount of nationally televised games.
Following the schedule release, I’ll have an analysis up along with my predictions.
