The Falcons have no wins against teams with a winning record in 2015. After an unexpected 5-0 start, the Falcons have lost seven of their last eight games and have lost six in a row. With the loss the Falcons now have a losing record on the year at 6-7.

The Falcons ran through the NFC East this year, but not one team in that division currently has a winning record. The Falcons are 0-4 in the NFC South and will not make the playoffs in 2015. It’s time to get ready for next season because this season is a lost cause.
