2011 NFL Schedule: An Early Projection for Each of the Atlanta Falcons Game

The Atlanta Falcons have only had a hand full of double-digit winning seasons in their entire franchise history, including their 13-3 campaign from 2010.

Following a winning season with another winning season has always been a challenge for Atlanta, but under Mike Smith, the Falcons have finished with a winning record since 2008.

Heading into 2011, Atlanta will be shooting for their fourth straight winning year. However, the expectations have risen drastically.

An 11-5 record or better should be the goal for the Dirty Birds, but a tougher schedule (no NFC West opponents) should make for a difficult road. 

With yesterday's schedule release (despite the lockout), we can finally try to dissect the Falcons' prospects of finishing over or under their 13-3 mark—second best in franchise history.

Albeit a tad premature, here's a look at each game and a projection for how each will turn out on the scoreboard.
