Even prior to the release of the schedule, Falcons fans knew that the 2015 schedule is far from easy. For the Falcons to make the playoffs, they will need to beat some talented teams.
The Falcons will play host to the Andrew Luck-led Indianapolis Colts, the Philadelphia Eagles featuring DeMarco Murray and the J.J. Watt show that is the Houston Texans.
On the road, the Falcons face daunting challenges against the Dallas Cowboys and ever-improving New York Giants.
