Zero of Russell Wilson's 35 pass attempts today were thrown into a tight window (<1 yard of separation), per NFL Next Gen Stats. Entering today, the most passes in a game without a tight window throw was 30, by Derek Carr in 2019 against LAC. Tight windows were first tracked in 2016. A credit to Wilson, his receivers, and Brian Schottenheimer.

Icon John Lewis to be Falcons' honorary captain

The Atlanta Falcons will pay tribute to late civil rights icon John Lewis by making Lewis the honorary captain for Sunday's season-opening matchup with the Seattle Seahawks.

Expect plenty of Falcons to wear names/phrases on the back of helmets Sunday for social justice. Ito Smith will wear “Alton Sterling'' in honor of the 37-year-old Black man shot dead by Baton Rouge officers in 2016. The shooting ignited protests against police brutality and resulted in a still unresolved wrongful-death lawsuit. Falcons long-snapper and player rep Josh Harris will wear the phrase “Stop Hate'' on his helmet.
