Week 3 of the 2020 NFL season features a matchup between two teams heading in different directions. The Chicago Bears (2-0) are looking to remain undefeated as they head south this Sunday to take on an Atlanta Falcons (0-2) team that's very hungry for a win.
At 43 years, one month, and 10 days, Tom Brady became the oldest player in NFL history to score a touchdown when he carried the ball into the end zone against the Saints in Week 1. For the past several years, it has seemed that he could play as long as he wants. But now that the "oldest" distinctions are kicking in on a weekly basis, it is important to remember that Brady would need to play through at least 2021 if he is going to make some headway into the below list.
Two teams that should be "mad as hell" after Week 1 — the Atlanta Falcons and the Dallas Cowboys — will meet up on Sunday afternoon at AT&T Stadium. The Falcons (0-1) need to get a win to keep pace in the NFC South.
The Seattle Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons will get together on Sunday afternoon to start off an unprecedented 2020 NFL season at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. These two teams met last October, as Seattle sprinted out to a 24-0 lead at halftime and held off a second-half Falcons rally for a 27-20 victory.
The history of sports is both vast and rich, thanks to the existence of so many different ones and the longevity associated with them. With so much history to cull through, Athlon Sports wanted to offer the opportunity to look back and see what memorable things happened or milestones were reached on a specific date.
With that in mind, August 24 is a day in which an MLB great was banned for life and the NFL's most exciting quarterback was suspended indefinitely.
New Orleans has ruled the NFC South for the past three seasons but Tampa Bay is the team generating the buzz this offseason. That's what happens when you add the Super Bowl-winning tandem of Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski to a roster that didn't lack for talent.
But the Saints certainly won't cede their crown without a fight with New Orleans boasting its own deep, talented roster and its own Hall of Fame quarterback. And to add a little more drama to this division rivalry — former Buccaneers starter Jameis Winston is now Drew Brees' backup.
The hopes were high for the Atlanta Falcons heading into the 2019 season. After a skid driven by injuries and questionable coaching in 2018, the team reverted to Dirk Koetter as its offensive coordinator and let head coach Dan Quinn call the shots on defense. It didn't work. Rather than rejuvenate the play calling, the Falcons cratered to a 1-7 record just before Halloween and looked like the worst Falcons team since 2007, the year before people like general manager Thomas Dimitroff and quarterback Matt Ryan were even in Atlanta.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson had the best dual-threat quarterback season of all time (and one of the best for his position period), rushing for 1,206 yards and throwing for 3,127 yards. It was little surprise that he was the unanimous choice for NFL MVP. He hasn't gotten over the hump in the postseason just yet (0-2), but Jackson's record-setting season has helped usher in the era of the dual-threat quarterbacks.
