Falcons Announce 2012 Schedule – Open at KC vs Chiefs

The Falcons will begin the season at Kansas City, then face Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in their home opener.

The Falcons have four prime-time games on the schedule released Tuesday by the NFL. The opener is Sept. 9 against the Chiefs. Eight days later, Atlanta takes on the Broncos and their high-profile new quarterback in a Monday night contest at the Georgia Dome.

There are two other prime-time games in Atlanta: Dallas on Sunday, Nov. 4, and NFC South rival New Orleans on Thursday, Nov. 29. The Falcons travel to Detroit to face the Lions on Saturday night, Dec. 22.

Atlanta gets a home rematch Dec. 16 against the Super Bowl champion New York Giants, who knocked the Falcons out of the playoffs last season.
