The Atlanta Falcons official 2021 NFL Schedule has been released, and it’s hilarious.
The Falcons introduced each week’s opponents’ Bachelor style, staring the Falcons mascot “Freddy Falcons.”
Throughout the entire video, the Falcons take a few seconds to roast each team.
It starts out with the Falcons trolling drunk Tom Brady post-Super Bowl where he threw the trophy from the boat. The is shows Sean Payton asking Jameis Winston for the “swiss army knife” and Winston hands Payton a wooden crab mallet––the Falcons’ golden attempt to make fun of the time Winston got caught for “stealing” crab legs. A very depressed Bill Belichick also pops up asking if Tom won the Super Bowl last year because he “didn’t really follow the season last year.”

Falcons’ London Game
The Falcons are also scheduled to have a game overseas in London this year where they will take on No. 2 overall in the draft, quarterback Zach Wilson, and the New York Jets. The match is scheduled for October 10 with kickoff at 9:30 a.m. ET at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Then the following schedule, the Jaguars and No. 1 over a quarterback, Trevor Lawrence, will play host to the Dolphins and former No. 5 overall pick Tua Tagovailoa on Sunday, October 17 at 9:30 a.m. ET at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The NFL started looking out the states in England back in 2007. In doing this, the NFL gives other countries a preview of American football, thus expanding its fanbase across the map. The games were actually scheduled last season, but COVID-19 ended up having to postpone, like many other exciting events.
But, the world is getting back to normalcy so hopefully, by October 10th, the NFL and England will get the green light to allow full capacity at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
