Today marks the first Sunday in a very long time without NFL football. I mean, even two weeks ago with no real games on, we were able to enjoy watching four Falcons in the Pro Bowl, which was fun. Today, however, is completely devoid of football. It's depressing.
That's why it's great timing for the Falcons to release this year-in-review video, which highlights the most spectacular moments from the 2015 season.
Remember when Desmond Trufant came on a corner blitz and sacked Matt Hasselbeck? That was a fun memory to relive. That Robert Alford pick-six that won the game against Washington -- what a moment.
From my seat in the press box, I guess I didn't notice how Tony Moeaki manhandled Saints defenders en route to the end zone when the Falcons played New Orleans in the Georgia Dome. It was hilarious. Rookie Vic Beasley stripping Cam Newton and Adrian Clayborn recovering the ball -- I'll never get tired of watching that play. From that same game, Atlanta's victory over the Panthers at home, the Julio Jones catch over linebacker Luke Kuechly was undoubtedly one of the best plays of the entire season.
I feel like I should warn you that this video is going to make you miss Falcons football very much. It also, however, will remind you how much promise this team has as they start to prepare for 2016.
