The Atlanta Falcons are flying throughout the pond this upcoming season. On Thursday night, the group introduced that they’d function a house group in an October recreation at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the league’s Worldwide Collection. The opponent and precise date have but to be revealed, however the Falcons are formally locked in because the “residence” group.
Whereas we do not know the opponent simply but, we will slim the group down to some choices. Aside from the Falcons’ divisional rivals, Atlanta’s residence opponents in 2021 embody the Detroit Lions, New England Patriots, New York Jets, Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Soccer Workforce, in keeping with NFL.com.
What’s unlucky about this improvement is that the Falcons will certainly lose a house recreation at Mercedes-Benz Stadium even supposing the NFL added an additional regular-season recreation to make it 17 complete video games. All groups will rotate in having 9 residence video games versus eight, and the NFC groups are those who’re going to begin off with having eight. Because of this the Falcons could have seven video games at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, one in London and 9 on the highway in 2021.
The NFL has been enjoying video games in London since 2007, and the Falcons had one matchup in opposition to the Lions in England again in 2014. Sadly, it was one other recreation by which the Falcons suffered a historic collapse, as they blew a 21-0 result in lose 22-21.
