Falcons exhibition season opponents set for 2014 

By D. Orlando Ledbetter

The Falcons know their exhibition season opponents, but all of the dates have not been set as the NFL released the partial schedule on Wednesday.

The Falcons, who did not receive one of the eight nationally televised exhibition season games, will host Miami, play at Houston, host Tennessee and play at Jacksonville.

The first game will be played between Aug. 7 and 10.

The second game between Aug. 14-18.

The third game between Aug. 21-24.

And the final exhibition game is set for Aug. 28.

WUPA-TV, Atlanta’s CW69, will broadcast all four of the Falcons preseason games in 2014 as the team’s official broadcast partner.

The question is will the home games both be on Thursday again when families cannot go.

Excluding Houston, they are going to be installing their offense and Romeo will be be tweaking Phillips' 3-4, this preseason does them no favors. You better hope Houston is the rehearsal game (where they game plan some). They need to be tested and shown looks.

They do play Jax every year.  Every team has a team that they play every year in preseason.

Among his many downfalls, Smitty is a horrific pre-season HC.

The Games may not count, but they matter!

I bet they wont go 0-4 this pre-season! They will look to win this year and make it a mission almost to a fault in pre-season!

I believe Tennessee is the third preseason game (at home) and Houston is the second game.
