Falcons Trip to England is Set

The Atlanta Falcons schedule will be released in full tonight during a three hour show on NFL Network at 8PM, but the teams are releasing some of the important dates bit by bit through the day.

First the Falcons announced that they will open the season with the Philadelphia Eagles on September 12th at 1:00 PM on FOX, and now their trip to England has been set as well.

The Falcons will take on the New York Jets Sunday October 10th at 9:30 AM EST in Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in north London.

On paper, it’s not exactly a marquee match up to showcase the NFL overseas as the Falcons finished 4-12 last season and the Jets 2-14, but it will be a chance to see two potential rising stars in Zach Wilson, the No. 2 overall draft pick, and Kyle Pitts, the No. 4 overall draft pick.
