Falcons 2023 schedule should make way for nice improvement

The Atlanta Falcons were a lot more competitive than people expected last season, and they added a lot of talent in the offseason. Arthur Smith’s team now looks like a group that will be incredibly tough to play against in 2023, and the Falcons happen to have one of the easiest schedules in the league. So, if Desmond Ridder can take a significant step forward in his second year as Atlanta’s quarterback, there’s potentially some money to be made in believing in the Falcons.

Atlanta Falcons schedule this year

The Falcons have to be ecstatic with their home schedule this year. They have games against the Packers, Texans, Colts, Panthers, Saints, Buccaneers and Commanders. All of those teams had losing records in 2022, and not many of them will be expecting massive improvements in 2023. Atlanta also happens to have some easy road games. This season will all come down to how Ridder plays under center. But one exciting spot on the schedule is that Atlanta gets to face Jacksonville at Wembley Stadium, in London.
