Atlanta Falcons


 

The Atlanta Falcons are members of the South division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL). Founded in 1965, the Falcons began their professional football career as expansion team after the city was asked to make a choice between joining the AFL or the NFL. The Falcons officially commenced play in 1966. While the team was able to sweep up many top-notch players in several of their first drafts, they did not post their first winning record until 1971. Over the years, the Falcons have fielded exciting teams that have supplied a fair share of memorable moments.
