With their loss against the Lions, the Falcons have now lost three games this season where they had a win probability of at least 98%, the most by a team in the last 20 seasons.

Congrats to the Falcons who are now offically the new Lions. This is a loss that would once be unthinkable to happen anywhere outside Detroit
Many have hated on the Falcons’ gradient uniforms, but they incorporate the franchise’s history into the design. Pretty cool
The red up top represents a 4th-quarter lead over other teams
As you’ll notice, it fades away and dissolves into the black, bottomless pit of defeat
The Falcons win probability in the 4th quarter:
99.9% vs Cowboys
99.6% vs Bears
95.9% vs Lions
They lost all 3 games.
The Falcons had a win probability as high as 98.7%, per ESPN's win probability model.
It was Atlanta's 3rd loss this season with a win probability of at least 98%, the most by a team in the last 20 seasons.
The rest of the NFL has 4 such losses combined this season.
- The Confederacy blew a 3-1 lead in the Civil War
- Atlanta blew a 28-3 lead in Reconstruction
- The Braves blew a 3-1 lead in the NLCS
- The Falcons just blow like a chick trying to make rent
- CNN probably blew a ratings lead somewhere along the line
Abolish Atlanta. Now.
The Falcons really scored a game-losing TD today lmfao
The Falcons have lost three games this season where they had a 95% win probability or higher. https://t.co/5IYSoZ365b
Falcons continue to lose in IMPOSSIBLE ways.
- Todd Gurley accidentally falls into end zone for go-ahead TD when Atlanta has ability to run out clock for win w/ chip shot FG (22-16, ATL, 1:12 remaining)
- Lions march down field for GW TD as time expires (23-22 DET win)
Matt Patricia absolutely deserves a lot of credit.
The Lions’ defense has looked very much improved for two-straight weeks now. That Falcons’ offense is good, and the Lions kept them under control.
Keep it rolling.
Cowboys exempt from slander cuz our starting QB out for the season 🤧 please dedicate all y’all energy to clowning the Falcons they earned it
Football is going to stay the king in this country. Their marketing is A+. The Lions-Falcons game was between two teams who probably won’t make the playoffs and there was excitement there. Charles Barkley will tell us that he isn’t watching NBA games between bad teams.
Dear Cowboys & Falcons fans,
It's NOT too early to run some 2021 mock drafts.
