The Atlanta Falcons (3-0) return home to take on the Houston Texans (1-2) in a highly anticipated Week 4 contest. Under Dan Quinn, the Falcons have shown some new-found grit and determination, and it’s resulted in three straight victories to kick off the 2015 season.

In the comfortable environment of the Georgia Dome for the first time since Week 1, the Falcons will fancy their chances. Here’s everything you should know.
