Falcons: Almost All Games Indoors

Think only a few are outdoor. That could be a problem. More accurate routes, passing, kicking, less potential fumbles inclement weather.

Saints have 8 outdoor games I believe but we do practice in an unforgiving climate so it's not a big deal but the Falcons clearly have an advantage playing almost all their schedule in a controlled environment.

Re: Falcons: Almost All Games Indoors

Falcons are going to be tough this year. I feel like it’s going to come down to us or them.
Hopefully their first playoff game will be against a team with an outdoor stadium and they will be totally unprepared.

Yeah but us whooping them twice will make 'em second in the NFC South. They will then get blown out in the wild card round by the Seahawks in Seattle.

13 of the Falcons’ 16 games will be played under a roof. Eight of them, obviously, will be played at home:

Cardinals: University of Phoenix Stadium
Texans: NRG Stadium
Colts: Lucas Oil Stadium
Vikings: U.S. Bank Stadium
Saints: Mercedes-Benz Superdome
Falcons: Mercedes-Benz Stadium

The Saints cannot have 8 outdoor games as they play in their Atlanta home Mercedes Benz Stadium every year. They could only have a maximum of 7 outdoor games. And they do have 7 this year: Bucs, Kitties, Jags, Rams, Seahawks, Bears, Titans. Luckily, only two of those road games (Titans, Kitties) are after November 1st.

Atlanta only has 3. The standard two against the Bucs and Kitties along with the 49ers.

Well pardon me. I said I believed it was 8 which meant I was guessing.



The main point though is still on target. They have a lot of indoor games. We do not but yes, want to get technical I was off by one game. Guilty as freakin charged.

Re: Falcons: Almost All Games Indoors

The big difference, though, is that out of 15 indoor games the Falcons won't have a home crowd in any of them.

Re: Falcons: Almost All Games Indoors

But they have to play ALL of their games as the Atlanta Falcons... which is punishment enough.
