Falcons Announce 2006 Schedule

The 2006 NFL schedule was released on Thursday. The Atlanta Falcons will face six playoff teams from last season -- Tampa Bay, Carolina, Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Washington and the New York Giants.

The Falcons are currently scheduled to have two nationally televised games, in Week 3 against New Orleans on ESPN and in Week 15 against Dallas on NFL Network. This may change in the latter half of the season, thanks to the league's new flexible scheduling program. The new program allows competitive Sunday afternoon games from Weeks 10-15 and Week 17 to be moved to a Sunday evening timeslot, and airing on NBC's "Football Night in America" (and locally on 11Alive).

The Falcons' first three games of the season will be against divisional rivals in the NFC South, including a Monday Night Football trip to New Orleans on September 25 to take on the Saints in the first game to be played in the Superdome since Hurricane Katrina devestated the Crescent City.

The Bye weekend is in Week 5, on October 8. The Falcons will play one Saturday game this season, on December 16, when they host Dallas.
