Choosing the three best Falcons games of all time

It's not an easy choice, believe it or not.

Today, we're kicking off a new series where we'll ask you about the three best/worst games, players, and coaches in team history. Today, we start with the best, most memorable games in Falcons history.

The Falcons are one of those franchises that have several great games, but no Super Bowl victories, so it can be difficult to determine which ones are the best. We're here today to decide.

As will be the case throughout this series, I'm not setting a lot of stringent guidelines for what  constitutes the best game, but I am genuinely interested to see whether playoff victories matter more to you than classic regular season performances, and how much wins over rivals like the Saints enter into your rankings.

Here's mine, and you will notice a trend:

  1. 1998 NFC Conference Championship Game against Vikings
  2. 2002 NFC Divisional Round Game against Packers
  3. 2012 NFC Divisional Round Game against Seahawks
I'm sure you'll have different answers, so share them in the comments. Tomorrow, unfortunately, we'll talk about the worst games in team history.
