Falcons Can’t Overlook Visitors From the Bay

Last weekend, NFL on CBS analyst Dan Dierdorf brought to light a very relevant point. Dierdorf was discussing the NY Giants/Cleveland Browns game, a matchup that clearly favored the defending champs.

The tone was set well before kickoff. Gonzalez could […]
