Back in the Day… with the Falcons

Back in the Day… With the Falcons

It’s another day closer, but still so far away. Today and tomorrow, we’re going to kill a little time looking at the histories of this year’s Super Bowl teams. First up- our hometown Falcons.

Sadly, though, it is a short history. Only once before have the Falcons made it to the Super Bowl. Back in the 1999, during Super Bowl XXXIII, the Falcons faced off against the previous year’s Champions, led by legendary quarterback and Nerf Football icon, John Elway. Elway was ending what would prove to be an all-time great career with a bang, hoping for back to back Super Bowl wins.

The Falcons, meanwhile, had everything to prove. If the Broncos were all but expected to at least play in the Super Bowl year, the Falcons were a complete surprise. Coming off a series of weak seasons, that year had been different for the Falcons. Sporting an impressive record going into the Playoffs, they scored a nail biting victory against the Vikings in overtime to make it into the Big Game.

An early lead looked exciting for the Falcons, with a field goal coming early. However, the Broncos soon took the lead, and the Falcons never managed to regain it. Though they wound up with a respectable 19 points, the 34 points for the Broncos proved to be a decisive victory.

It’s been almost 20 years since that day. The Falcons are back, once again facing off against returning champions led by a legendary quarterback. We’re hoping for different results this time around though! Go Falcons!

Tomorrow, we’ll have a look at the Super Bowl history of the Patriots.

In the meantime, Matboard and More will continue our Superbowl Promotion, with 20% off any NFL mats until Sunday. We can handle both standard and custom orders, and even exact color matches in acid free mats for all the playoff teams, including our hometown Falcons.

It’s hard to say exactly what is so striking about …
