The Falcons joined the NFL as an expansion
team in 1966. Over the years, the Falcons have fielded
exciting teams that have supplied a fair share of memorable
moments. Atlanta registered its first winning season in
1971 and first division title in 1980. Perhaps the pinnacle
of success for the Falcons came in 1998 when Atlanta won the
NFC championship and earned a berth in Super Bowl XXXIII.
