The 1994 Atlanta Falcons season was the franchise's 29th season in the National Football League (NFL).

Under head coach June Jones, the Falcons' Run and shoot offense was heavily imbalanced in 1994, in favor of the passing game. Atlanta's passing yardage—4,112 yards—was third in the NFC, and fifth in the league overall; but their rushing yards (1,249, 78.1 yards per game) were dead-last in the league. They had, by far, the fewest rushing attempts in the league in 1994, with only 330 all year.[1]
