The 2016 Atlanta Falcons finished with a regular season mark of 11-5 and that was good enough to win the NFC South division and earn the team a bye in the wildcard round of the playoffs. They faced Seattle and Green Bay at home in the playoffs and won both games by double digits to earn a berth into the Super Bowl to face the New England Patriots. The Falcons blew a second half 25 point lead and eventually lost to the Patriots in the Super Bowl in overtime by the score of 34-28 as a 3 point favorite.

The Atlanta Falcons were number one in the NFL in scoring offense as they averaged 34 points per game. They did struggle in pass coverage as opponents threw for 266 yards per game ranking 28th in the league. The Falcons must have a short memory. What will haunt this team and coaching staff all offseason was the blown 25 point lead in the Super Bowl. Quarterback Matt Ryan must live with the sack he allowed late in the game that put the Falcons out of field goal range to set up the game tying drive for the Patriots. Quarterback Matt Ryan set a career mark in 2016 as he completed 70% of his passes. He finished with 4944 passing yards with 38 touchdowns and seven picks. In the post season Ryan threw for no less than a 70% mark in each game and had nine touchdowns and no picks. Atlanta for several seasons has had issues putting pressure on opposing quarterbacks. It was somewhat improved last year which got the team to a Super Bowl but not enough pressure on Tom Brady in the second half that cost Atlanta a Super Bowl win. Their first two picks on the draft came on the defensive side of the ball with defensive end Takkarist McKinley from UCLA and LSU linebacker Duke Riley.
