Falcons to open new stadium with NFC title game rematch

The Falcons will get a little extra time in the preseason to get their new building ready.

And when Mercedes-Benz Stadium opens for the regular season, the wait will be worth it.

According to Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the Falcons will christen their building with a Week Two NFC Championship Game rematch against the Packers on Sunday Night Football.

The Falcons will open the regular season on the road against the Bears.

After three construction-related delays for the opening of their new building, the Falcons are expected to play in the third and fourth weeks of the preseason there. But the Georgia Dome is still standing, just in case.

    Atlanta Fans….second most fraudulent fan base in the Country! #1 being Miami

    Actually we embarrassed ourselves. We didn’t need any help from you.

  5. If I was a falcon fan I wouldn’t talk smack to anyone after that collapse. You’re gonna have a hangover from the super bowl and it will last all season

  6. The packer players will be amazed that a stadium can have modern amenities and regular seats instead of barn doors and bleacher seats.

    It’s comical how much the Vikings are in the heads of pack fans. Even comments from non-Viking fans will draw out the inferiority complex. And by the way, Barney has consistently rated at or near the top every year by every kid in America.

  9. atlanta fans acting like they already won the game, packers fans cant say much, however that choke the falcons had in the superbowl is way worse than any blowout loss ever. falcon fans need to shhhhhhhhh

    Obviously not as much as Packer fans are in yours. Still licking your wounds from the MVP performance Rodgers laid on the overrated Steelers? Still?

    Barney hasn’t won a Superbowl in your life time either, all though may have appeared at one in the last 40 years.

    That explains why you guys flood rival stories though, you guys just finished watching your favorite TV show, and have nothing better to do.

  13. Falcon fans…….but for a one-point loss earlier in the season, in Atlanta, the game would’ve been at Lambeau in the wintertime. Good for you. You got home field advantage.

    But there’s one thing you don’t have: Bragging rights for how your season ended.

  14. A Viking troll on a Packer story that doesn’t involve the Vikings in any way, shape, or form?

    Knock me over with a feather.

    Wow. Even the simplest idioms go over your head. You tried to joke and keep it within the parameters of your “thing,” your “schtick,” but it was a stretch and you failed.
