The Bow Tie Chronicles: Falcons stumble out of the gate

In the 142nd episode of The Bow Tie Chronicles podcast, we review the Falcons’ 28-12 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. The Falcons are 2-3 in five season-opening games under head coach Dan Quinn. Everyone is on Chris Lindstrom fractured foot watch, while the defense needs to get ready for a heavy dose of the run game until they show they can stop it as they turn their attention to the Philadelphia Eagles.
