The Atlanta Falcons joined the NFL in 1965 making them the 15th franchise to join the National Football League. The Falcons have been crowned NFC champions twice in their history (1999, 2017) and appeared in Super Bowl XXXIII and LI. The 1998-99 season for the Falcons came to an end in Super Bowl XXXIII as Atlanta fell to the Denver Broncos 34-19. Eighteen years later after an 11-5 finish to the regular season, the Falcons cruised by the Seattle Seahawks 36-20 in the divisional round and scorched the Green Bay Packers 44-21 in the NFC Championship Game to clinch their second Super Bowl trip in franchise history. Super Bowl LI would go down in history as not only the largest deficits overcome to win a Super Bowl but also the only time the Super Bowl has gone to overtime. Atlanta would eventually fall to the New England Patriots 34-28 in one of the most memorable Super Bowls to date.
Atlanta has appeared in the playoffs 14 times in their history, with their last trip coming in the 2017-18 season. The Falcons also have 6 division titles to their name (1980, 1998, 2004, 2010, 2012 and 2016). The Falcons joined the NFC South division prior to the 2002 season and have appeared in the postseason eight times since then – the most of any NFC South team.
