Atlanta Falcons 2022: News, Schedule, Roster, Score, Injury Report

The Atlanta Falcons are a member of the NFC South Division and play alongside the Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Through their existence, the Falcons have struggled to maintain a winning season in the regular season and the Playoffs. Their metrics come in at 365-461 in the regular season and a 10-14 run in the Playoffs.

Additionally, they’ve failed to capitalize on 2 Super Bowl appearances the first of which came back in the 1998 season in a loss to the Broncos. 18 years later they failed to clinch a ring against the New England Patriots in a 34-28 overtime loss at Super Bowl LI.

The club had a rather dismal campaign in 2020, which was their 55 season in the NFL. The Falcons clocked in with a 4-12 overall record and placed last in the NFC South.

The club’s woes were bolstered by the sacking of Head Coach Dan Quinn in the middle of the season. Quinn was fired in October when the Atlanta Falcons had a 0-5 record and was swiftly replaced by Raheem Morris, who rounded out with a 4-7 finish.

Logo

The initial logo for the team was a black falcon with a red outline, and the falcon’s head and talon protruded from its body to form the capital letter ‘F’. This logo was kept for over 23 years but in 1990 the franchise red outline was changed to black. This logo lasted until 2003, when the logo was changed to its current state.

The change was a modern spin because the Falcon got a sleeker redesign to give it an appearance of flight. Furthermore, there were silver and red accents to make it look more aggressive while still resembling a capital letter ‘F’.

Owner Achievements

Arthur M. Blank is a businessman and co-founder of The Home Depot. He’s the owner of two teams in Atlanta, Georgia- the Atlanta Falcons and MLS’s Atlanta United. Furthermore, Atlanta United won the 2018 MLS championship and shares the Mercedes-Benz Stadium with the Falcons.

Blank also expressed serious interest in purchasing other franchises. In 2006, he temporarily withdrew from contention as a potential buyer of the Atlanta Braves of the MLB. However, the Braves completed the sale of the team to Liberty Media.

Atlanta Falcons 2022 Sponsors

Delta Airlines announced that it will return as a sponsor of the Atlanta Falcons, 8 years after dropping a past sponsorship. The tie-up began in 2017 and will play out right through the 2021 season, making the Atlanta-based airline the official carrier of the Falcons. Moreover, a major part of the deal is a Sky360 Club at the football stadium, a 25,000-square-foot club on the field level, and advertising at the stadium.

What’s more, AMB Sports and Entertainment (AMBSE) and Gallagher announced a multi-year partnership, making them the official insurance brokerage and risk management company of the Atlanta Falcons. Not to mention, the Suite Level at Mercedes-Benz Stadium has been renamed the Gallagher Suite Level.
