Ravens tickets 18% above season average for Falcons game

The Baltimore Ravens opened up a can in Week 6, absolutely crushing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the road. For a team that hadn’t been great away from a home, it was a statement game.

Getting a feeling for how the Atlanta Falcons will match up with the Ravens…

Who are these Atlanta Falcons circa 2014? I’m not sure even the Falcons and their fans have the answer for that identity question yet. The Falcons at 2-4 are struggling. They don’t dominate home games at the Georgia Dome anymore like they used to.

Falcons lose 27-13 to Bears in must-win home game

Julio Jones didn’t have his best game. (John Bazemore) The Atlanta Falcons used to be seemingly unstoppable at home.
