Atlanta Falcons NFL Betting

In February 2017, the Atlanta Falcons had Super Bowl Glory in their grasp. In Super Bowl LI, the Falcons looked like a team that would win in a route. The Falcons led the New England Patriots 28-3 with 8:31 remaining in the 3rd quarter. But New England rallied to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat in a stunning 34-28 overtime win for the ages. The Falcons have never been the same since that catastrophe. Atlanta has not had a winning season or playoff bid since 2017. Head coach Arthur Smith has gone 7-10 and 7-10 in his two years on the job. Record-setting franchise quarterback Matt Ryan was dealt to the Indianapolis Colts last summer. And Marcus Mariota couldn’t make the finish line for the 2022 campaign. Rookie Desmond Ridder had his moments, but he is a work in progress. Which is an apt description of the Atlanta franchise.

Rookie Desmond Ridder's first two career touchdown passes powered the Falcons to a 30-17 win over the playoff-bound Bucs after Tom Brady added to his imposing list of records.

Led by Brady, the Buccaneers' coach Todd Bowles used backup Blaine Gabbert behind Brady before second-year quarterback Kyle Trask made his NFL debut in the fourth quarter.

Rookie Tyler Allgeier rushed for 135 yards on 24 carries to end Atlanta's fifth consecutive losing season. The Falcons finished with back-to-back wins under second-year coach Arthur Smith.

Brady began the day needing nine completions to top his 2021 single-season record of 485. He set the mark on a 5-yard pass to Russell Gage, the former Falcons receiver, early in the second quarter.

Brady already holds many NFL career passing records, including for yards, completions, and touchdowns.

Brady completed 13 of 17 passes for 84 yards with a touchdown, giving him 490 completions for the season. Brady capped Tampa Bay's opening drive with an 8-yard scoring pass to tight end Kyle Rudolph.

Ridder completed 19 of 30 passes for 224 yards. He threw his first career scoring pass to tight end McCole Pruitt in the first quarter and added a 3-yard scoring pass to Olamide Zaccheaus late in the third quarter for a 20-17 lead. Cordarrelle Patterson added a 2-yard scoring run.

Ridder lost a fumble late in the second quarter. The ball slipped out of his hand as he attempted to pass, and Devin White returned the fumble recovery 9 yards to the Atlanta 22. The play set up Gabbert's 3-yard scoring pass to Gage, giving the Bucs a 17-10 halftime lead.

Allgeier finished his rookie season with 1,035 rushing yards. Drake London passed the Falcons' record for receptions in a season for a rookie. Kyle Pitts had 68 receptions in 2021. London had six catches for 120 yards and finished the season with 72 receptions.

The Falcons used to be a hot property that the networks liked. But those days are over. Atlanta will get only one prime time appearance this season. The Falcons are at the Carolina Panthers on a Thursday night Prime Video matchup in week ten.

The season begins with three road games in the Falcons’ first five matchups. That puts a premium on the week one home opener against a beatable New Orleans Saints team. The Saints have a new head coach and Jameis Winston as the projected starting quarterback. The days of the Saints being a serious contender are over.

The Falcons were founded as an NFL expansion team in 1966 and didn't make the playoffs until 1978. They have two NFC championships in 1998 and 2016. Their infamous Super Bowl collapse to the Patriots is one of the biggest NFL debacles ever.

The Falcons were born during the peak of the AFL vs. NFL league war. The AFL was interested in placing a franchise in Atlanta. Thus, the NFL moved to cut them off at the pass. Also, there was a sunbelt strategy involved with the NFL. The New Orleans Saints were born the following year, creating an instant rivalry between the Southern cousins.

The Falcons have had their share of great players during their history. Deion Sanders, Claude Humphrey, Steve Borkowski, Jeff Van Note, Tommy Nobis, and Roddy White lit up the Atlanta marquee. Sanders and Humphrey are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Van Note had a remarkable career from 1969 through 1986.
