Will the Atlanta Falcons be able to win a home game in MBS this year?
It has been well documented, the Atlanta Falcons have yet to win a game in Mercedes-Benz Stadium this season. It is an odd statistic for a team that usually thrives under the dome.
There is no explaining it, it seems as if every game they play in Atlanta is basically non-competitive. They simply look lost in their own stadium.
Will the Atlanta Falcons be able to win a game in Mercedes-Benz Stadium?
While you may take a peek at the Falcons home record and see one win, that win did not come in Atlanta, in fact, it did not even come in the United States, they picked up their lone “home win” in London against the New York Jets. It is an odd technicality but it still shows that the team has not won on their own turf.
So will the team be able to pick up a win in Atlanta? The likely answer is “yes.”
If you were to bet on the team picking up at least one more win either on the road or at home, the more logical answer would be at home. This comes down to the opponents they play, on the road they will take on the San Francisco 49ers and Buffalo Bills, while at home they play the Detroit Lions and New Orleans Saints.
Everyone would take playing the Lions and Saints over the recently surging 49ers and a tough Bills team.
The Lions game is where the win should come, however, when it comes to the Falcons you never know who they may lose to, so do not chalk this up to an automatic win. The chances may be in the favor of the home team, but you never know.
Then in the season finale, Atlanta will look to sweep the Saints, who finally picked up a win against the Jets this past week. The Falcons should be favored to win, and if the team is not fighting for a playoff spot come week 18, then sweeping the New Orleans Saints is the next best thing.
So, the Atlanta Falcons should be able to finish up the season with a win or two in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, after they have struggled mightily there during this season.
