3 Week three games Atlanta Falcons fans should be watching closely
By Nick Halden
It is understandable if a number of Atlanta Falcons fans are already tired of watching their team this season. Suffering through painful loss after painful loss at some point becomes too much to remain invested for some Atlanta fans. This is understandable for a team that has a unique way of inventing ways to give their fans hope only to lose the game at the very last moment.
Last Sunday’s game is the clearest recent example of this with Atlanta falling behind hopelessly by an all too familiar score. Atlanta fans’ hopes were smashed early a week after another collapse in a game Atlanta should have won.
The Falcons charged back wiping away a four-score deficit and pulling within six points with the football deep inside Los Angeles territory with under two minutes to go. Mariota made a terrible decision and threw a ball high to Atlanta’s fourth receiver allowing Jalen Ramsey to go over the top and pick off Mariota ending the game and a crazy comeback attempt.
It was another new way to inflict pain on Atlanta fans who expected to be beaten and whose team invents new ways to give its fans hope only to take it at the last moment. The point here is for those Atlanta Falcons fans who need a break from watching this team we have you covered with three great week-three games to give fans a break from the inevitable Falcons heartbreak.
