The last time the Atlanta Falcons won consecutive playoff games was when the 1998 14-2 Falcons made it to Super Bowl XXXIII. Their first opponent in the NFC Playoffs? A 49ers team lead by Steve Young and Terrel Owens (before the huge ego).
Thomas Dimitroff addressed the Falcons playoff philosophy, the rest of the regular season schedule, the return of Sean Weatherspoon and more. . . . .
When a team commits six turnovers in a game and still leaves a winner there are usually one of two reasons why this happened: the losing team played even worse or the winning team is good enough to overcome their mistakes. Looking at the Falcons’ body of work this season, the reason is probably the latter one.
Quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends, oh my! As the season continues to advance, the injuries continue to pile up for both teams. As always, the question of who has more depth may decide the outcome.
Playing your conference rival is always a much more physical and emotional game. Following their first loss of the season, the Falcons may just need a few extra days to recover from this one.
One of the rare times in this season that the Atlanta Falcons have more players in their injury report than their opponents. This time, twelve Falcons are on the report while the Saints have just five.
Every week takes a toll on players’ bodies. Yet there always seems like certain teams can’t prevent catching the injury bug. That may have just happened to the Falcons.
Dallas may have one big piece of their offense missing for Sunday’s game while Atlanta does have one key piece at defense out. The question is which team will be able to compensate for the loss of their star player?
He may only be a third year player, but he’s not to be trifled with. With the Falcons currently at 4-0 for the season, they need to rely on their passing attack as well as their formidable defense led by Asante Samuel, John Abraham and the man known throughout Atlanta simple as “Spoon”.
