Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons joined the NFL in 1965 as an expansion team, where they were immediately welcomed by the football-mad state of Georgia. Patience would be required, however, as it took the Falcons well over a decade to make their first appearance in the postseason in 1978, a home playoff game against their fellow avians, the Philadelphia Eagles, which they squeaked through 14-13. In the next round, the “Dirty Birds” would push the mighty Dallas Cowboys to their limit, falling just short of the mark at 27-20. In 1989, the team drafted Deion Sanders, a generational talent at cornerback who drew eyes to the Falcons not only for his dazzling talent on the football field but for the fact that he also played Major League Baseball at the same time (Sanders has the incredible distinction of being the only person ever to play in both a World Series and a Super Bowl)! While Sanders would only stay a few seasons, his time with the Falcons seemed to buoy the team up into contention for the next decade, capped off by their incredible 1998 run to Super Bowl XXXIII, which they lost to the Denver Broncos 34-19. The Falcons would return to the Big Dance for another go in 2016 when they squared off against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI. Falcons fans’ hearts were broken once more, when Tom Brady’s Patriots scored a game-winning touchdown in overtime to win 34-38 and deny Atlanta its first ever NFL title. Recent seasons have been a struggle, with just one playoff run since the 2016 Super Bowl appearance, but with huge home support at the sparkling Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the Falcons will be looking to find their wings again in the near future.

How can I get cheap tickets to Atlanta Falcons games?

In football-mad Georgia, the Atlanta Falcons have maintained a loyal fan base despite never quite getting it done at the Super Bowl (yet). Fans have been flocking to the spectacular new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in huge numbers for Falcons home games, which is great for game day atmosphere, but can make tickets difficult to come by, particularly for key regular season deciders, postseason playoff games, or rivalry matchups (see below).

Atlanta Falcons Rivalries

The Atlanta Falcons have three big divisional rivals in the New Orleans Saints, Carolina Panthers, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Their all-time series against the Saints is quite the battle indeed, currently deadlocked at 55-55 after the Falcons lost to their rivals from New Orleans in 2024 by a score of 48-17. The Falcons also have some historical animosity with the Green Bay Packers, who they have met four times in the postseason (two wins apiece) as well as the Philadelphia Eagles, who have the edge over the Falcons in playoff games at three wins to one. This avian rivalry was at its fiercest in the early 2000s due to intense arguments between the teams’ supporters as to who had the better quarterback: the Falcons’ Michael Vick vs. the Eagles’ Donovan McNabb. Games between such big rivals are always ones to watch!

Are Atlanta Falcons football games exciting?

Going to an Atlanta Falcons football game at dazzling new Mercedes-Benz Stadium is quite the experience. The roar of the crowd rises to meet the beat of the entrance music as the Falcons players rush onto the field amidst fireworks, flags, and cheerleaders. Fans come decked out in the colors of their team (black, red, silver, white) and raise their voices together to try to inspire the home team to victory. As with any NFL game day, it’s as much about the party as what happens on the field in Atlanta, with fans gathering in locations like the The Home Depot Backyard to enjoy tailgating with friends and other fans including plenty of food and drinks.
