If you wanted a reason to be optimistic about the Falcons' chances of making the Super Bowl next year...well, Vegas isn't gonna give you that. Sorry.
The Falcons are considered 40-1 to win the Super Bowl, placing in them in the august company of teams like the Lions, Saints, Bears, and Giants. That's not an inspiring list, and I think I could quibble with it a little bit, but the Falcons still have a lot to prove.
Your early favorites are the Seahawks, Patriots, and Steelers (??), with the Panthers and Broncos clocking in a little lower than anticipated.
Who do you think will win the Super Bowl in 2017?
