Halftime
Throwback Game
The Atlanta Falcons will wear replica, 1966 jerseys for the team's Week 2 game against the Carolina Panthers and its Week 12 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers . This is the first time since the team re-designed its logo and uniforms in 2002 that throwback jerseys will be worn. The 2009 Falcons will wear the throwback uniform in place of the alternate jerseys they've worn in previous years (black jersey, black pants). The reasoning for 1966? Well, it was a special year in Atlanta -- the year the NFL awarded a franchise to the city. Rankin M. Smith was awarded the team for $8.5 million. At the time there were 14 NFL franchises in existence, eight AFL clubs. Officially, Atlanta became the 23rd professional football club in existence, the 15th in the NFL prior to the merger. During halftime, we are proud to recognize members of the 1966 team.
