After a poor schedule, facing 9 teams with just under .500 records the Falcons always had an asterisk beside there 13-3 record of 2012. In 2013 however the Atlanta Falcons have a chance to prove all the naysayers wrong before the playoffs even begin!
The Falcons are facing the top teams in the NFC this year with the 49ers, Seahawks, Packers and Redskins headlining the group. Not to mention the Patriots, who are always in contention and the Saints who should bounce back this year with the return of Sean Payton. With the question marks surrounding Atlanta’s defense they will need to rely on their strong offense to outscore opponents but With 5 opponents making it to the playoffs last year and a few knocking on the door that wont be an easy task.
Bottom line, this is the year we will know if the Falcons are a legitimate team or not. The Atlanta Falcons need to take care of these highly skilled teams and if they can do that it won’t be long before they are finally getting the respect they deserve!
