Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of seasons completed by the Atlanta Falcons American football franchise of the National Football League (NFL). The list documents the season-by-season records of the Falcons' franchise from 1966 to present, including postseason records, and league awards for individual players or head coaches.

Worthy of note is that the Falcons did not record consecutive winning seasons until 2009, when the team won their final three games of the regular season and finished with a 9–7 record after winning their season finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Atlanta has since added its first stretch of 5 straight winning seasons, with a 13–3 record in 2010, with a 10-6 record in 2011, and with a 13-3 record in 2012, although they posted a 4-12 record in 2013.
