Falcons center Mike Person expected to miss Saints game

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Falcons center Mike Person, who left Sunday's win over Washington with a sprained ankle, is expected to miss Thursday night's game at New Orleans.

Falcons depth chart previews some matchup challenges for Eagles…

I don’t have any early odds to set yet for the opening game of the 2015 regular season next Monday night between the Eagles and the Falcons at Atlanta. Both teams have gone through some major overhauls of personnel. Frankly I don’t have a definite feel for the Falcons right now. I need to take a deeper look at what’s going on down there.

St. Louis Rams’ commitment to Cignetti, Boras confirms offseason speculation

Last week, the Rams made it official that former quarterbacks coach Frank Cignetti would be promoted to fill the team’s vacancy at offensive coordinator. Along with that, tight ends coach Rob Boras had his title elevated to assistant head coach of the offense.
