2014 Atlanta Falcons Road Schedule
The Atlanta Falcons are ready to soar across the nation in 2014 as they face
off with many of the top clubs in the NFC and beyond, and fans will be eager to see a rebound after a 2013 season that didn't
go completely according to the game plan. But sometimes that's the way the ball bounces, though a bit of bad injury luck can
only keep an explosively talented team like the Falcons down for so long. With Matt Ryan, Roddy White and Julio Jones, the
Falcons are sure to do some serious damage to secondaries all season long as the Falcons look to get back into the playoff
hunt in the NFC South. The Falcons did not quite live up to their own lofty expectations last season, as the team was bitten
hard by the injury bug.
The road schedule also isn't exactly lacking in exciting opportunities and big-time challenges.
An early season matchup against tough AFC North team Cincinnati on Sept. 14 is a great early-season road matchup and games
against the New York Giants (Oct. 5) and Baltimore (Oct. 19) are both sure to be filled with Falcons' fans. The Falcons will
have to step up their game when they visit the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte, NC this season, as the high-flying Panthers
definitely have a team that will test the Falcons' defense. The Falcons will hit the Panthers' home field on Nov. 16, followed
by other divisional matchups against the Bucs on Nov. 9 and the Saints on Dec. 21. With so many exciting matchups to choose
from, this is sure to be another season loaded with memorable road moments as the Falcons look to make their mark in the NFC
Atlanta Falcons Team Info
The Atlanta Falcons had a tough go of it in 2013 thanks to a rash of
injuries to their important offensive players, but everyone around the league knows that this is a team filled with explosive
playmakers when they're at or near full-strength. The biggest injury to plague the team was to star wide receiver Julio Jones,
who was on the verge of breaking out in a big way before he went down. Losing Roddy White didn't hurt either, but the one
upside was the emergence of Harry Douglas, who now looks like a remarkable third option for a team bursting over with offensive
weaponry. Though the defense needs to show a little bit of improvement this season, the defensive side of the ball also has
plenty of talent as well, giving the Falcons a very good chance in the NFC this season.
