The Atlanta Falcons could make a deep run within the NFC in 2023

It has been a mundane and disappointing past five seasons for the Atlanta Falcons. The Dirty Birds just capped off a season that represented their fifth-consecutive year without a playoff berth.

It is about time for this team to take the field in January for a meaningful game. Fortunately for them, there is a clear path to snapping their playoff drought.

They are going to be a new-look team led by a new quarterback surrounded by one of the best running games in the NFL. They also will benefit from the teams around them, which we will dive into later on.
