The Atlanta Falcons came close to the Super Bowl. And they aren’t looking to take a step backwards this season. The road this time around might be harder as the NFC has emerging talent everywhere.

Just in their division it’s getting tougher with Cam Newton’s growth and the Saints returning to a state of normal football operations after a tumultuous season last year.

The first month they have some stiff competition in the Saints (in New Orleans) and Patriots. The Seahawks come to town in November, and outside of those three teams they face a favorable schedule in the first 9 games. The end of their season gets rougher. They face the Saints to close out November. They than travel to Green Bay, face the Redskins, than travel to San Francsico. They close out the season at home versus Carolina.
