FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — The Falcons joined the rest of the National Football League in unveiling the entirety of its 2023 schedule on Thursday evening.
Bryce Young, the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft, will return to Mercedes-Benz Stadium to make his NFL debut for NFC South division rival Carolina. Jordan Love, the newly anointed starting quarterback for the Green Back Packers, will lead the Packers into town for a week two tilt. Following the first road contest of the year, the Falcons will travel across the pond to Wembley Stadium in London to take on the Jaguars.
Atlanta will return stateside to host the No. 2 and No. 3 picks in April’s draft, C.J. Stroud and Will Anderson, respectively, and the Houston Texans. Following the second of two straight home games in October, the Falcons will resume division play at Tampa Bay and their extremely fluid quarterback situation. Following a road trip to Nashville to take on the Titans to close out the month, Atlanta returns to take on the Minnesota Vikings and their electric offense. A trip to the Valley of the Sun to face the Cardinals concludes the pre-bye week portion of the season.
Week 12 brings a matchup against hated division rival New Orleans. The first game of December is set to feature Aaron Rodgers and his new club in the Meadowlands: New York Jets. The Falcons return home for a division matchup against the Buccaneers before heading up I-85 to take on the Panthers in Charlotte. The Falcons will host their final home game of the regular season on Christmas Eve against the Colts and potential starting quarterback Anthony Richardson. The Falcons will finish the season on the road with matchups in Chicago and in New Orleans.
Despite not having any primetime matchups, the Falcons will have numerous opportunities to win games against teams with unproven quarterbacks and those who picked near the top of the draft this year. View the entire 2023 slate of games below.
