What you need to know about Falcons - Cowboys in Week 2

The Falcons and the Cowboys both have one loss on the docket heading into Week 2, but they’re dealing with that in very different ways.

For Atlanta, no matter how laser-focused this team is on each game in front of them, a loss feels deeply problematic. Atlanta’s banked so much on keeping the current brain trust in place based on a remarkable 6-2 run at the end of 2019 that a slow start confirming that momentum is meaningless would be hugely damaging. The Falcons are also in a division with the Saints and Buccaneers, who are expected to be (though won’t necessarily be) major contenders in the NFC.
