Falcons’ 2020 opponents nearly set

The Falcons’ 2020 list of opponents is nearly set, with the identity of two teams yet to be determined.

If the Falcons beat the Buccaneers on Sunday and finish in second place, they will play either Seattle or San Francisco from the NFC West at home. If they finish in third place, they would face the Rams.

A second-place finish also would mean a road game at the Eagles or the Cowboys from the NFC East instead of at the New York Giants.

Next season’s away games will come against Tampa Bay, New Orleans, Carolina, Kansas City, the Los Angeles Chargers, Green Bay and the NFC East team (Philadelphia, Dallas or New York Giants).

In the home games, the Falcons will face Tampa Bay, New Orleans, Carolina, Chicago, Detroit, Denver, the Raiders (who are scheduled to move to Las Vegas) and the NFC West team (San Francisco, Seattle or the Los Angeles Rams).

One of those “home” games will be at an international location, however.
