Atlanta Falcons Continue to Win Important Games

The Atlanta Falcons suffered a terrible defeat at the hands of the New England Patriots in the 2017 Super Bowl, something they will want to forget in a hurry. The best way to forget about that, is to return to the Super Bowl in 2018, but this time do the business and lift the Lombardi Trophy.
The most impressive thing so far from the Falcons, both at the start of this season and recently has been their ability to win hugely important games. At the start of the season, they would have been forgiven for starting slowly, after their Super Bowl meltdown. However, they didn’t they started by winning their opening three games of the season, a start that impressed many of the games analysts.
Since then they have done pretty well, although in recent weeks they have again shown tough character, and won some very important games. Going into week ten of the season they were 4-4, and struggling for momentum a little. This was a key time for them, and one where they needed to show their metal, something they did. Their good recent run began with an impressive 27-7 defeat over the Dallas Cowboys, a team who were playing pretty well back then.
That was the first game in a run where they have gone 4-1, and propelled themselves to 8-5 overall, giving them the upper hand when it comes to qualification for the playoffs. Despite a tough ending to their 2017 campaign, they have bounced back and showed great character this season. If they can carry that on to the end of the season, there is no doubt the Falcons are genuine contenders to go one step further than last season.
The odds at Champion Bets on the Falcons to win the Super Bowl will certainly shorten if that run does continue, and many people will be interested in backing them for glory. If they have learnt from their experience last season, and they can use it to their advantage then that will certainly help them in their quest for success this season.

Their attacking stars are all coming to the fore in recent weeks and in their last game against New Orleans, the three main players, Devonta Freeman, Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu all impressed. All three went close to registering 100 yards, with Freeman and Sanu adding touchdowns to their totals. Those three are hugely important for the Falcons, and at least two out of the three needs to perform and give them offense every single game.
Should they do that then there is every reason to fancy that the Atlanta Falcons can go deep in the playoffs, and challenge for the Super Bowl two years in a row. After showing their ability to win important games, and conquering the tests that have faced them, it would be silly to write off the Atlanta Falcons this season, even when you consider what happened to them last season. Keep your eye on the Falcons, they appear to be coming good at just the right time.
