Atlanta Falcons Odds to Win Super Bowl LIV

Atlanta Falcons Betting

As good as Matt Ryan was last season, the Atlanta Falcons stunk. Ryan had numbers comparable to those of his 2016 MVP season, and in some cases even better. However, when the team goes 7-9 and misses the postseason, MVP votes aren’t cast in your favor. With such stellar play from their quarterback, how the heck did the Falcons finish below .500? Injuries ravaged the defense and the points didn’t match the yards on offense. The Falcons will start over in 2019 with new coordinators and a new special teams coach. Dan Quinn escaped to enter his fifth season, but he’s clearly on the hot seat.

Atlanta Falcons Week 2 Preview

The Atlanta Falcons believe they are among the best teams in the NFC this season, but did not look anything like it in their season opener. The Falcons went on the road in Week 1 and got demolished by the Vikings. They face off with another conference power in Week 2 as the Philadelphia Eagles come to town, and this is a game Atlanta needs to win or else it will be staring at a significant hole early in the year.

It is certainly a tough task, as Philadelphia is projected to be among the best teams in the NFC this year and got off to a hot start with a comeback win over the Redskins in their opener.

The Falcons’ passing game may be a touch better but the Eagles are more talented in most other areas, so this will not be an easy game. Atlanta gets the benefit of the home field advantage and would be well-served to win this game. There are a lot of playoff contenders in the NFC, and the team’s division features the mighty New Orleans Saints, so the Falcons have to keep pace early in the year.

Atlanta announced a three-year contract extension for star wide receiver Julio Jones this weekend, keeping him with the team for the next half-decade. He remains one of the best pass-catchers in the NFL and will be a handful for the Eagles. Quarterback Matt Ryan will aim to feed him early and often in this one, while Mohamed Sanu and Calvin Ridley are also potent options. Devonta Freeman is Atlanta’s main threat on the ground and the Falcons would like to have some balance offensively.

The Falcons defense had myriad issues a season ago and in Week 1 the group couldn’t stop Minnesota running back Dalvin Cook. This is a tough matchup as Philadelphia quarterback Carson Wentz has a lot of options, including Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson at wide receiver and Zach Ertz at tight end. The Eagles acquired Jordan Howard this offseason to run the ball and Atlanta has to hold up in both phases to avoid needing to win a shootout.

The Falcons and Eagles are two of the past three NFC champions, but expectations are higher for Philadelphia this season. Atlanta would love to pick up this win to get back into the conversation of the NFC’s top teams.

Atlanta Falcons Week 1 Recap

The Falcons opened up the season on the road against the Vikings and lost by a score of 28-12. They trailed by four touchdowns at the outset of the fourth quarter and only made the margin somewhat respectable in garbage time. Jones was held to only six catches for 31 yards and a touchdown, and while Ryan threw for 304 yards with two touchdowns, it was a lot of empty yardage and he also tossed two interceptions. Cook has 21 carries for 111 yards and a pair of touchdowns as the Vikings only had to throw the ball 10 times in the easy victory.

The Falcons pinned a lot of last year’s defensive issues on injuries, but that cannot be an excuse in this one. Atlanta needs to figure things out in a hurry because the Eagles are coming to town with weapons galore.

The Falcons do traditionally play well at home and they need to hope a turnaround is on the horizon because another lackluster performance would really sound the alarm bells in Atlanta. This team did not look anything close to playoff-caliber in Week 1 and now a tough foe awaits as the Falcons return home on Sunday.

With the rival American Football League pursuing the city as a destination for an expansion club, the NFL swooped and negotiated a deal with Rankin Smith to make Atlanta the 15th NFL franchise for the 1966 season. The Falcons lost the first nine games of their inaugural season, ending with three victories. The team posted just two winning seasons in its first 12 years and didn’t reach the postseason for the first time until 1978.

In their maiden playoff game, the Falcons upended Philadelphia in the wild card round, but fell to Dallas the next week. Two seasons later the Falcons won 12 games and captured their first NFC West title, but they dropped a 30-27 heartbreaker to the Cowboys blowing a 14-point fourth quarter lead. Success was sporadic after that. The Falcons reached the Super Bowl for the first time following the 1998 season when they won a team record 14 games.

Led by rookie quarterback Matt Ryan, the Falcons won 11 games in 2008 and posted back-to-back winning seasons for the first time in franchise history when they went 9-7 the following year. In 2010 the Falcons started a three-year run where they compiled a 36-12 record and reached the postseason every time, another franchise first. They lost the 2012 NFC Championship and endured three straight non-winning years until reaching the Big Game in 2016, only to suffer the letdown of blowing a 25-point lead and losing the first overtime Super Bowl game.

The win total has decreased the last two years and the Falcons failed to match the franchise record for consecutive playoff appearances by going 7-9 in 2018. The duo of Ryan and Jones has been a fixture with Atlanta’s offense for nearly a decade. Ryan continues to add to his franchise passing yardage record while Jones will take over the top spot in receiving yards in 2019.
