Expectations for the Atlanta Falcons should be high heading into the 2023 season with a great off-season and an easy schedule. Making the playoffs should be the expectation for a team playing in what appears to be the worst division in football and with a good roster.

Atlanta's division opponents are clearly all in worse situations with Carolina having far more question marks on their roster with a new head coach and a rookie starting quarterback. Tampa Bay was a below .500 team with Tom Brady and now has lost massive talent and will have a Baker Mayfield vs. Kyle Trask competition.

New Orleans clearly is in need of a rebuild and despite a slight upgrade at quarterback Derek Carr isn't a playoff or division contender. The Saints have continued to put off a rebuild the team has needed clearly over the last three seasons.

The table is clearly set for the Falcons to take a large step forward in year three under Terry Fontenot and Arthur Smith leaving pressure clearly at the highest it has been since Atlanta hired the duo.

Looking at Atlanta's roster and considering the stakes of this season it is clear which Atlanta Falcons will be facing the most pressure this season.
