“I understand when you are not winning,” quarterback Matt Ryan said. “I guess it is not that exciting, and we have to do our part as players. When we get it on, our stadium can get going for sure. It has been disappointing that we haven’t been as good as we are capable of being, but we are playing better right now and hopefully, we can give the folks that are there on Sunday afternoon something to cheer about.”
In 2017, the Falcons went 5-3 in their new posh stadium. Last season, they were 4-4. That’s a combined record of 11-12 over the three seasons at MBS.
This season after beating Philadelphia in a great Sunday night atmosphere, the Falcons were defeated by the Titans, Rams, Seahawks, Buccaneers and Saints before beating the Panthers earlier this month.
“It has definitely been a bummer for us, not to be able to deliver like we are capable of,” Quinn said. “That is why it is important for us this weekend, we want to show them how important they are by having that kind of performance for them.”
