Three things the Atlanta Falcons must do to win on Thanksgiving

1 of 4

It’s not often that we get an Atlanta Falcons game on thanksgiving. Prior to last season, the last time the Atlanta Falcons were featured on Thanksgiving was back in 2007 against the Colts.

For all intents and purposes, this is the 2019 super bowl for the Atlanta Falcons. There’s not much that beats playing your biggest rival at home on Thanksgiving night, even when having a down season.

Only two teams every year get this opportunity to be featured on prime time as you’re putting up your Christmas tree. We should be thankful that we are this lucky to appear for a second straight year.

However, as big of a game as it is, it won’t be as easy as it was in Week 10.

After what seemed to be the Atlanta Falcons taking steps in the right direction with back-to-back wins against divisional rivals, it has all gone to waste after a terrible home performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay offense dissected these Atlanta Falcons pass defense that was coming off of a four-interception performance. Busted coverages and poor tackling did the Falcons in on Sunday.

Hope is not all lost though as we did just defeat the New Orleans Saints in New Orleans in Week 10. That proves in itself that this team has the ability to win against one of the league’s top teams.

These are the three things the Atlanta Falcons must do in order to secure their second win at home this season.
