Atlanta, Georgia.

Mercedes-Benz Stadium, this is the goal. This is what the Atlanta Falcons front office, coaching staff and players have their eyes set on.

Super Bowl 53 in our own backyard. 

Injuries are part of this beautifully violent game. They come when you least expect them and when you can least afford them. Is there any doubt that the Falcons would have won Super Bowl 51 had cornerback Desmond Trufant been healthy? Not for me. 

I took a look at the five Falcons players that the team cannot afford to lose to injury in 2018 if they are going to hoist the Lombardi Trophy on ​Feb. 3, 2019 in Atlanta playing on the turf inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium​.
