That is just the outline of the Atlanta Falcons season, now let's get to the game-by-game predictions for the team, starting with week one.

Week 1: Carolina Panthers @ Atlanta Falcons

Each team within the NFC South looks a lot different in 2023. The Carolina Panthers will be led by a rookie quarterback in Bryce Young and we all know that you never know what you are going to get from a rookie, even one as experienced as Young is. Young has had success in Mercedes-Benz Stadium but the Atlanta Falcons are a little different than college teams.

Both teams end up relying on the running game with young QBs, but in the end, the home team wins by ten. They have more talent on the offensive side of the ball. The only question remaining is if this game will be as crazy as the one last year—highly doubtful.

WIN - ATL 27, CAR 17 | (1-0)
