The offseason is in full swing, with trades (the Chiefs got absolutely fleeced), mock drafts, and your favorite draft “expert” giving Lamar Jackson a second-round grade. The Atlanta Falcons are coming off an above average 10-6 redemption season that fell flat on its back on the two-yard line in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

The offense has put up 30 or more the last two games, and the defense is finally starting to come together. Though, they’re a bit nicked up right now on both sides of the ball, and a surprising 2-1 Buffalo Bills team is set to make the trip to Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
