The greatest kicker in franchise history? Yeah. Matt Bryant has made his mark as arguably the greatest kicker in Falcons history, and he just keeps on burnishing an impressive list of accomplishments this year. Today, he booted a 59 yard field goal to close out the first half of the game, which is tied for the longest field goal in franchise history with a 59 yarder from fellow...

The NFL is allowing players to wear cleats that have special messages written on them this week. It’s a way for players to help the public become aware of causes that are dear to them. We saw Dallas Cowboys tight end Gavin Escobar wear cleats that told us a story about his battle with cancer on Thursday. And we will see hundreds of players wearing similar messages during Sunday’s...

A few hours before kickoff, the Georgia Dome, the 71,228 seating capacity stadium that houses that Atlanta Falcons, is quiet. Look closely, though, and you'll see a speck of a bald man, usually dressed in all black with whites sleeves covering his arms, running up and down the stadium steps in the lower bowl as part of an exhausting pre-game ritual.

The Kansas City Chiefs are facing an extremely important matchup against the Falcons in Atlanta this upcoming weekend. At a surprising 8-3 on the season, Kansas City currently holds the top wild card spot in the AFC and is just one game behind the Oakland Raiders in the AFC West. One of the biggest keys in a game that pits two likely playoff teams against one another is just how...
Falcons receiver Taylor Gabriel continued his emergence Sunday with two touchdowns and 75 yards in a 39-19 win over the Cardinals. The Falcons took to Twitter to troll the Browns, who released Gabriel during training camp in September.

With each passing week, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Taylor Gabriel is proving his doubters wrong. The undrafted free agent from Abilene Christian has found a home in the Atlanta Falcons offense. He has emerged as a home run threat in the past few weeks for Atlanta, and has been electric every time he has touched the ball. Today was no different, as Gabriel torched the Arizona Cardinals...
The Atlanta Falcons may be in the driver’s seat in the NFC South with a 6-4 record, but the team will reportedly be without one of its best players for the remainder of the season.

It’s fair to say that Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Leodis McKelvin came away unimpressed after facing the Atlanta Falcons. McKelvin, whose interception with less than two minutes remaining on Sunday sealed the Eagles’ 24-15 victory, made clear his belief that the vaunted Atlanta offense loses its swagger when plays are made against them. “I was telling the defense, this...

The Atlanta Falcons don’t care much for the Philadelphia Eagles. A war between teams with bird mascots better come with proper pre-game shenanigans. It was the Falcons making sure the buildup to this one hit the mark. Atlanta’s mascot took a sledgehammer to a TV playing a little movie called Rocky: Not feeling that brotherly love today. #RiseUp pic.twitter.com/bJPQI9fKzJ...
