Falcons' schedule features 4 night games

ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Falcons will play four night games in a 2011 schedule that includes a prime-time visit from Michael Vick.

The schedule, released Tuesday night, shows the Falcons opening at Chicago on Sept. 11.

The Falcons earned the four prime-time slots by finishing 13-3 and winning the NFC South last season.

Atlanta will play two Sunday night games, including a Sept. 18 home opener against Vick and Philadelphia. Green Bay, which beat the Falcons in the playoffs last season, visits the Georgia Dome on Oct. 9 in another Sunday game.

The Falcons play host to Jacksonville in a Thursday prime-time game on Dec. 15.

Their only Monday night game will be played on Dec. 26 at New Orleans.
