After becoming the only team in the NFC to get into the playoffs for two straight years, the Falcons stumbled to a 7-9 regular season record in 2018, thanks in large part to injuries.

Starters on both sides of the ball, including both safeties, their middle linebacker, both guards, and their running back were confined to the injured reserve list.

The 2019 season will prove crucial for the Falcons, with his focus on getting back over .500, beating the Saints, contending for the division, and earning an NFC postseason berth.

Most national observers predict that the division will be a two team race between New Orleans and Atlanta, with the Falcons expected to take another step back in the right direction with all of their starting players healthy and in their respective positions after a 2018 season marred by injuries.

Already, the Falcons have attracted some positive press from national analysts, with some naming the team as one marked for major improvement from last year to this.

Moreover, they still have the same roster in place that, in the summer of 2018, had those same analysts predicting that the Falcons would play in and win Super Bowl LIII.

Offensively, the team still boasts legitimate star power in quarterback Matt Ryan, who enjoyed statistical success throwing the ball last season, and wide receivers Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley, who combined for 18 touchdown catches, and Jones led the NFL in total receiving yards.

Defensively, the hope is that Deion Jones, Keanu Neal, and Ricardo Allen will all recover enough from their injuries to resume their position as difference makers on this side of the ball.
