These were games in which the Falcons were supposed to “handle business” and walk away with a comfortable win. Nonetheless, each one of those contests ended in a loss that left fans scratching their heads, dishing verbal rants to televisions, and perhaps even firing up the years-long “fire Dan Quinn” movement that flares up in the fanbase, though not as hot as this year. Whatever positivity you can muster from the Falcons 40-39 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in week two is impressive on your part.
Make sure these players are in your lineup.
Just the way we drew it up, right? It will be a challenge on the road, and with the Bears possessing the strongest defense the Falcons have faced to date, it will be a test of Atlanta’s offensive firepower. But after the woeful defensive performances of the previous two weeks (Foye Oluokun’s Dallas game notwithstanding) are the Falcons even capable of stopping anyone at this point?
