Here’s the Atlanta Falcons full schedule for 2020

The NFL released the Atlanta Falcons schedule on Thursday. We break it down, including a full list of games, prime time matchups, and strength of schedule.

The NFL announced the complete 2020 schedule on Thursday evening, and the Atlanta Falcons will kick off their 2020 season at home against the Seattle Seahawks. Their first divisional game will be against the Carolina Panthers in Week 4.

The Falcons got off to a terrible start in 2019 but manage to rally on the defensive end toward the end of the regular season to finish second in their division with a 7-9 record. They still have Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley out wide, but lost Austin Hooper to the Cleveland Browns in free agency. Atlanta hopes Todd Gurley can help pick up the slack on the offensive end. Adding Dante Fowler Jr. and A.J. Terrell to its defense could help make up for the loss of Desmond Trufant at cornerback, but the Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has raised the level of competition.

All times listed are Eastern.
