EDTShareTweetShareShareTop ‘revenge’ games on the Falcons’ 2019 schedulePhoto by Chris Graythen/Getty ImagesThe 2019 Atlanta Falcons season is just under 100 days away, kicking off in Minnesota against the Vikings. Narratives and story lines naturally make their way into any team’s schedule, and there are a few games on the 2019 docket that should be accompanied by one word: revenge. Last year did not come close to the Falcons’ expectations, ending with a too-little-too-late winning streak, a whimper, and the first losing record in Dan Quinn’s tenure as Atlanta’s head coach. They may not say it outright, but revenge should be on the minds of many Falcons players, and their desire for on-field retribution will focus on the following cities: Philadelphia, New Orleans, and San Francisco.Week 2: Philadelphia Eagles at Atlanta Falcons Philadelphia is an accursed place. It was the site of last season’s opening loss Black De’Vondre Campbell Jersey , and the location where things began tumbling down around the Falcons. Keanu Neal, Deion Jones, and Devonta Freeman went down with injuries that soggy night at Lincoln Financial Field, serving as an ill omen for what the remainder of the season had in store. Thankfully this season’s match-up with the Eagles will take place right at home in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and it’s safe to say that the Falcons circled this one on the schedule when it was released. From the devastating 15-10 loss in the Divisional Round of the 2017 playoffs to what transpired in the first game of 2018, the Atlanta Falcons are itching to rid themselves of the Philadelphia dark cloud that’s been trailing them for the last two years.Week 10: Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints Falcons-Saints clashes are already wrought with emotion, but after getting swept by the Saints last season, expect there to be some extra edge in this first meeting — especially after the Saints ruined Thanksgiving. Last year’s primetime game on Turkey Day was an abject disaster — a migraine-inducing, blood pressure-elevating affair that made you wish you had succumbed to your early evening tryptophan coma. The Falcons squandered three scoring opportunities with three fumbles near the goal line, each possession akin to visual heartburn. Thanksgiving came to a close on a sour note to the tune of a 31-17 loss against Atlanta’s most hated rival.With that nationally televised embarrassment still fresh in their minds De’Vondre Campbell Jersey 2019 , the Falcons will head into this one with added motivation to avenge 2018’s two losses to the Saints.Week 15: Atlanta Falcons at San Francisco 49ersThis will be the Falcons’ first meeting with the Kyle Shanahan-led 49ers, and running up the score should be a top-of-mind priority. Running is the key word here.Shanahan’s time in Atlanta ignominiously ended with extremely questionable play-calling in Super Bowl 51, and regardless of press statements about ‘being over it’ or ‘moving on,’ make no mistake: The Falcons should head into this one looking to bury Kyle Shanahan’s team. It won’t take away any of the neverending bitterness of Atlanta’s Super Bowl loss, but it will be an emotional, cathartic exercise at the very least. Exorcising the demons of Kyle Shanahan has to happen, preferably to the tune of a 40-burger — and primarily on the ground.Falcons vs Bengals: Can the offense continue to dominate? With a 1-2 record, the Falcons are now in a situation where the margin for error is getting perilously thin. The injuries to the defense have been significant, though the offense has not been immune. However, this unit has weathered the storm fairly well so far Black Deion Jones Jersey , scoring over 30 points in the last two games in spite of the injuries. Here’s how the offense matches up with the Bengals defense.Note: Assessments based off of PFF scoringIn the trenchesThe Falcons offensive line has had ups and downs this year, but is still a solid unit overall. Alex Mack and Jake Matthews are the anchors of this unit. Ryan Schraeder hasn’t been as good as in previous years but is still solid. On the interior, losing Andy Levitre has hurt, but Wes Schweitzer has filled in decently for him. He’s not great, but he’s not nearly as bad as he was at RG last year, and he did have an excellent game against the Panthers. Brandon Fusco has been solid at right guard as well. This unit has faced some fierce competition the last couple of weeks, so there’s reason to believe they will settle in and help this offense stay on track.The Bengals have some good players on their defensive line. Geno Atkins is still one of the best defensive tackles in the league and could be a problem for the Falcons line up the middle. Second year tackle Andrew Billings is off to a good start this year as well. Carlos Dunlap is a good player who has consistently played at a high level through his career. Jordan Willis looked really good as a rookie, but has been quiet so far in 2018. DT Ryan Glasgow can also do a great job of shutting down the run. Carl Lawson also offers them some pass rushing prowess on the end.This is a closer match-up than it may seem. I don’t expect either unit to dominate, but each will get their shots. Advantage: PushThe skill positionsThe Falcons offense has bounced back considerably since their week one debacle. Matt Ryan now has 897 yards with 7 TDs (plus 2 rushing!) and only 2 INTs for a passer rating of 106.5. Julio Jones had a “quiet” week against the Saints, only amassing 96 yards. However Deion Jones Jersey 2019 , his presence on the field opened up opportunities for Calvin Ridley, who went off for 7 catches for 146 yards and 3 TDs. The youngster looks like the real deal. Mohamed Sanu has been quiet so far this year, but he’s been reliable and is always a solid option if Julio and Ridley are covered. Austin Hooper has been good this year and looks like he’s finally growing into that receiving tight end role. The running backs have looked great, with Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith filling in admirably with Devonta Freeman on the mend. This is an incredibly talented and dangerous unit.The Bengals linebacking corps could be the big weakness for this defensive unit. In the middle, Hardy Nickerson has struggled against the run and the pass. Jordan Evans is good against the run but a liability in coverage. Nick Vigil is the best of this unit and is mostly average against both the run and pass. It’s clear they’re missing Vontaze Burfict. The safeties for Cincinatti are not bad. Shawn Williams is not having his best year but has shown to be capable in the past. Rookie second rounder Jessie Bates has looked good at free safety so far. Second year corner William Jackson looked great last year and has played mostly well so far in 2018. Dre Kirkpatrick has been solid but not spectacular, which is the definition of his career so far. In nickel sets, Darqueze Dennard is not off to a great start and could be someone the Falcons look to target if he gets matched up one-on-one with Calvin Ridley.The Bengals have some issues in this part of the defense and this is a match-up that strongly favors the Falcons. Advantage: FalconsOverallThe best hope for the Bengals will be to pressure Matt Ryan early and often. If they don’t, there’s no reason to think the Falcons rejuvenated offense can’t put points on the board against this unit. This defensive line is good, but isn’t considerably better than what the team has faced the past two games. Advantage: Falcons
