3 Reasons the Atlanta Falcons can win the NFC South in 2023
By Nick Halden
The Atlanta Falcons season will come to an end on Sunday against Tom Brady’s NFC South champion Bucs. An ending that seemed inevitable at the start of the season wasn’t decided until the final two weeks of the season with Carolina and Tampa playing for the division.
