Most notable of which is Ezekiel Elliott returning to AT&T Stadium to face the Dallas Cowboys.

The Falcons traded Ridley to the Jaguars while serving his suspension for betting on NFL games.
Also, Baltimore Ravens edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney is a part of the revenge tour as he faces the Cleveland Browns.
Clowney played two seasons for the Browns before joining their AFC North rivals.

Meanwhile, wide receiver Adam Thielen, now with the Carolina Panthers, will face his former team, the Minnesota Vikings.
