It’s an early game for those of us in the states.
The proposition of waking up in the morning to watch the Falcons play has grown less and less enticing as the week has gone on, thanks to an increasing number of injuries and the absence of Calvin Ridley this coming Sunday. We’ll still watch, though, because this is our team and they still at least have a shot of beating the Jets with all that attrition.
Here’s how you can watch, should you elect not to use church or work or a well-deserved day of sleeping in as an excuse. Go Falcons, in spite of everything!
Atlanta Falcons vs. New York Jets, Week 5
When: Sunday, October 10 at 9:30 a.m. EST
Where: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London, United Kingdom
Channel: NFL Network
Announcers: Greg Gumbel, Adam Archuleta, AJ Ross and Melissa Stark
Streaming: Falcons app for local audiences
Radio: 92.9 The Game
Key Questions: Gosh, where to start. Can the Falcons generate an effective passing offense without Calvin Ridley and Kyle Pitts? Will they slow down the Jets defense without Isaiah Oliver and potentially Erik Harris on the field? Who fills the roles vacated by injury and absence this week, and will it be enough?
