Birds try to avoid last seasons fate
We all remember this point in the season last year. Your Falcons were sitting pretty at 6-4 and looking towards the playoffs. Then the rest of the season happened and all of a sudden you are 8-8 and on the outside looking in. Not this year…by golly I hope not!
The Atlanta Falcons look to regroup against the Arizona Cardinals this weekend after a 15-24 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles two weeks ago. During their bye week, the team fell in the rankings to 8th and with five of their six remaining in the NFC and four of the six at home, the team will have to work hard for that playoff spot.
“We know the exciting challenge that’s in front of us after the bye,” Falcons coach Dan Quinn said. “We have five of the six games in the NFC. So, we’ll be completely pumped for that.”
The Falcons will need all hands on deck for the remainder of the season and the dome can be a bright spot that opponents can’t get over.
“Let’s hope that we can make it as loud as we possibly can … in the Dome,” Quinn said. “Our fans will be ready to rock and our team will be as well.”
