Week 1 is finally upon us and it's officially game week.
The Falcons and rival New Orleans Saints will clash at Mercedes-Benz Stadium to open up the 2022 regular season on Sunday. Both teams closed out the 2021 season against each other so it's no better way to kick-off the first game. Quarterback Marcus Mariota will make his Falcons debut against his 2015 draft mate Jameis Winston, and this will be the first time since 2014 that the Falcons and Saints open the season against each other.
