- D. Orlando Ledbetter The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
In the 36th episode of The Bow Tie Chronicles podcast, D. Orlando Ledbetter discusses the five reasons why the Falcons made the playoffs. The Falcons finished the regular season 10-6, posting back to back 10-win seasons.
The Falcons lost to five playoff teams (Patriots, Vikings, Bills, Saints and Panthers) and the Dolphins. If they win that Dolphins game, they would have won the NFC South and would be playing at home at the No. 3 seed.
