Contrary to popular belief, the Falcons do not play a game this Sunday afternoon. They are on something called a “Bye Week” and get to relax while the rest of the league continues the season.
I can see it now. You just clicked on the link to this article and are probably wondering to yourself one or all of these three things. “There is no specific reason the Falcons don’t play this week, every team gets a Bye”, “This guy is an idiot” or “Why in the world is this guy writing this kind of article when the Falcons don’t even play?”
Well confused reader, I’ll tell you why.
After some thinking, I thought the bye week would be a great time to reflect on this wild Falcons’ season, while still looking ahead to the remaining 6 games. So instead of my normal five reasons why the Falcons either won/lost this week, I will use the five slides to look back on fun moments from the season so far. Also, I will give my thoughts on the upcoming games and even make a bold prediction.
The Atlanta Falcons are 6-4 and lead their division. Many fans and pundits alike didn’t see this start coming at the beginning of the season from this team. I know I sure didn’t. There have been a lot of fun games, and some disappointing performances as well. But above all, the Falcons have placed themselves firmly into the playoff hunt with 6 games remaining in the 2016 NFL Season.
Consequently, this should make all Atlanta fans excited for what has happened and what still lies ahead. The dirty birds have defied expectations, and in this unpredictable year of 2016, they just might have a special playoff-run in store for us.
