Saying the Atlanta Falcons have a tough schedule in 2017 would be an understatement. The Falcons were the best team in the NFC last season and now will have one of the toughest schedules in the league.
Being an Atlanta Falcons fan has never been easy but this season was the most heartbreaking even if it was their best. If the Falcons had lost the Super Bowl in a different manner maybe it would be easier but their utter collapse is still hard to think about.
The Falcons know what they lost last season and how high expectations are for the seasons to come and have their work cut out for them if they want to repeat last season’s success.
While the Panthers and Saints may not be playoff threats anymore they are tough teams that along with the Bucs will make up six of the Falcons games that will be very important for the success of the season. Dominating their division last year is what gave the Falcons so much success they are going to have to repeat the same feat in 2017. Here are the Falcons 2017 opponents.
