Falcons release 2013 schedule

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA, GA (WALB) -

The Atlanta Falcons are looking to make the playoffs for the fourth straight season and improve on last season's NFC Title game appearance.

But it looks like they have a tough road ahead of them.

The Dirty Birds' 2013 season slate released tonight, and it looks quite daunting.

Aside from their NFC South rivals, the Falcons will play host to the Redskins, Patriots, and will host a rematch of their NFC Divisional Playoff with the Seattle Seahawks.

The season doesn't get any easier when Atlanta leaves the Georgia Dome either. Road games include trips to the NFC Champion 49ers and Green Bay Packers.
