   The release of the 2012 NFL schedule is set for 7:00pm this evening, and as always it should be covered extensively on both ESPN and NFL Network. This season, it is imperative that Atlanta gets off to a good start, but more importantly show up in the postseason. We are months away from competition, but now it is time for the Vegas odds makers to set their bets.

    What we Falcon fans do know is we are playing home games versus Dallas, NY Giants, Arizona, Denver, Oakland, Tampa Bay, New Orleans, and Carolina. We are set to face the entire AFC West this season, and I am positive that we caught a break here…Nobody knows who is a playoff contender in this division. Sure, Manning to Denver is big, but nothing is guaranteed until Manning is back to Pro Bowl form. The away games are Philly, Washington, Detroit, Kansas City, San Diego, Tampa Bay, New Orleans, and Carolina. I also am ecstatic to witness the RGIII and Mike Vick lead teams…I’m a sucker for electric players. This evening at 7:00pm is when all will be revealed.

Again, here is what we know… The question is in what order will Atlanta face them?

Philadelphia



NY Giants

Detroit



Denver

San Diego



Tampa Bay
