Could the Atlanta Falcons London game be moved to Atlanta?
Earlier this year an announcement was made that the Atlanta Falcons will give up one of their home games to play in London sometime during the 2020 NFL season. In an interview, Arthur Blank stated he believes the Atlanta Falcons will play the Denver Broncos for the London game.
Normally the NFL schedule is released around mid-April before the NFL Draft. Atlanta Falcons fans will have to wait until May 9th to see what the schedule is for the 2020 NFL season.
The opponents for the Atlanta Falcons are already set. For their home games, they will face the Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Denver Broncos (London), Las Vegas Raiders and Seattle Seahawks.
The Atlanta Falcons road game schedule includes the Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Minnesota Vikings, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys.
Normally by now, we would know the order of the schedule for the Atlanta Falcons, but the NFL has yet to release the schedule. Given the global pandemic, the NFL has surely thought of a contingency plan for the upcoming season.
One of the most pressing needs for the schedule is international games. No one knows exactly what is going to happen with the coronavirus, but international games are sure to be one of the biggest topics of the schedule because they are planned so far in advance.
A report came a couple of weeks ago stating President Donald Trump told the NFL there should be no delay to the 2020 NFL season. Since several NFL games are international this season, some games might get moved back to the United States with the original home team hosting.
There is no definite report on this but an interesting topic with no official announcement on any games and the NFL schedule release is delayed almost a month. Given the pandemic, the Atlanta Falcons London game could move back to Atlanta.
