The Buffalo Bills and the Atlanta Falcons will come together for a big game in Week 4 of the NFL 2017 regular season on Sunday. The game takes place from the Mercedes-Benz Stadium and has a scheduled start time of 1 p.m. ET. The game can be watched on TV on the CBS network, or online through live stream (details below).
The Bills will be hoping to inflict a first loss of the season on the Atlanta Falcons today. The Falcons have been excellent through the opening three weeks of the season, and they will be confident they can claim a fourth win of the season today to move up to 4-0.
The Bills come into today's game on 2-1, and know how important it is to build on that start rather than slipping back to 2-2. However, they face one of the in-form teams in the NFL here in the Falcons, and they will have to be at their best to avoid a second defeat of the season here today.
The Falcons have won the past four meetings between these two teams, with the most recent coming in 2013 when they claimed a tight 34-31 victory.
The Bills have not won against Atlanta since way back in 1995, so they are hoping to break a more than two decade losing streak against the Falcons today.
Earlier this week, the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears got Week 4 off to a start on NFL Thursday Night Football. However, the contest was not as competitive as most neutrals would have liked, and the Packers eased to a comfortable 35-14 victory.
Packers' quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, threw for four touchdown passes, with two finding Jordy Nelson for touchdowns.
The result moved the Packer to 3-1, which leaves them in a solid position as they look to consolidate their good start to the season over the coming month and ensure they get one hand on a postseason spot as soon as possible.
However, for the Bears the season is quickly slipping away from them, and their third loss of the season sees them drop to 1-3, and it now seems a long way back for them to even get to a level record.
The Packers were in front right from the start in Thursday's game, and quickly jumped out to a 14-0 lead following Aaron Rodgers leading them to an opening drive touchdown.
There was a 45 minute delay in the game due to a lightning strike, however, not even that could shock the Bears into life, and they limply gave up the game to a far superior side.
One major area that the Bears must fix asap is Mike Glennon; things are simply not working. Glennon gave up four turnovers on the night, with two interceptions and two lost fumbles. That simply isn't good enough and there's little hope for the Bears to get a result when they give the ball away so consistently for free. Those four turnovers directly led to 21 of the Packers' points, which shows how costly each was. Now through the opening four games of the season, Glennon has given up eight turnovers; something must be done.
