FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Dan Quinn has a request for Falcons fans: Show up on Sunday and make Mercedes-Benz Stadium as loud as it can possibly be.
The Falcons (4-7) are returning to Atlanta looking to snap their current three-game skid against the Baltimore Ravens and their vaunted defense. But Quinn believes the fan base can give his defense a big boost - similar to the boost Deion Jones will provide in his first game back from injury - by creating a noisy atmosphere and disrupting the Ravens' shotgun-heavy offense.
"I am definitely calling [for] all loudness from the fan standpoint," Quinn said. "Let's get it turned up as loud - 10, 11, 12, something like that - as loud as it can be in the gun. It's so much fun to play in that kind of environment, anyway. It will be really rocking for them. But, yeah, they are a big shotgun team, so having our extra advantage of playing at home, let's do it."
At home this season, the Falcons are 3-3 and coming off a close loss to the Dallas Cowboys in their last game inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
