Atlanta will look to continue the momentum from recording an NFC-best 13-3 record, marking the team's second-highest win total in franchise history. The Falcons also claimed the NFC South title and earned the top seed as well as home field advantage in the NFC Playoffs. Combined with an 11-5 record in 2008 and a 9-7 record in 2009, Atlanta has now posted three consecutive winning seasons for the first time in club history and has earned two playoff berths in the last three seasons.
In 2010, the Falcons sent a franchise-record and NFL-best nine players to the Pro Bowl with DE John Abraham, TE Tony Gonzalez, FB Ovie Mughelli, QB Matt Ryan, RB Michael Turner, WR/ST Eric Weems, and WR Roddy White all voted in, while T Tyson Clabo and CB Brent Grimes were added as alternates at the end of the season.
The Birds went 7-1 at the Georgia Dome this season, which was tied for the second-best home record in a single-season in franchise history. This is the fifth time in club history that the team has posted a 7-1 home record, including twice under Head Coach Mike Smith.
Atlanta also maintained its commitment to building through the draft, selecting six players in the 2011 NFL Draft. On day one of the draft, the Falcons made a splash, trading up from the 27th spot to sixth overall to select Alabama wide receiver Julio Jones. On day two, the Falcons selected University of Georgia linebacker Akeem Dent (91st overall) in the third round. Atlanta kicked off the third and final day of the draft by selecting Oregon State running back Jacquizz Rodgers with the 145th overall pick. The Falcons also selected University of Miami (FL) punter/kicker Matt Bosher (192nd overall) in the sixth round and Fresno State offensive lineman Andrew Jackson (210th overall), and South Carolina defensive end Cliff Matthews (230th overall) in the seventh round.
