Atlanta will have a chance to earn a major win vs the Steelers in 2018 as they fell short in 2014 with a 27-20 loss at home. This was one of the four AFC North losses in 2014 that resulted in a sweep. The Falcons will also have an opportunity to avenge a loss to another AFC North team in the Ravens as Atlanta lost in Baltimore in 2014, 29-7. This will again feature a battle of the 2008 draft class of quarterbacks between Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco.

The Dirty Birds also look to avenge a 26-24 loss to the Browns at home in 2014 in which Atlanta mismanaged the clock late in the fourth quarter that helped Cleveland seal the upset.

The Falcons fell 24-10 to the Bengals in Cincinnati in 2014 so this will help Atlanta look to bounce back vs another AFC North foe who embarrassed them.
