  1. I'm surprised no one has taken note of this. If we want to save our season against the Bengals this Sunday, we have to get over this ridiculous, aggravating, and frustrating stat that we couldn't overcome against the Bills and Dolphins last season. I understand that 2013 and 2014 were the ruff years with Matt Ryan when our O-line was bad and our defense was atrocious, but with the easy schedule we had in 2015 and the good teams we had in 2016 & 2017 considering the AFC teams we played at home, this has become unacceptable and I'm tired of it. Heck, we have a better point differential on the road against AFC opponents than being at home vs. AFC opponents since 2012, because even in 2012 our wins on the road in Kansas City and San Diego were blowouts but our home wins against the Broncos and Raiders were decided by 6 or less. 2015 vs. the Texans, the franchise whose home was the Super Bowl we ended up playing in the following year is our only AFC home win in that stretch. The Falcons must put to an end to this issue now! I'm sick and tired of losing to AFC teams on our HOME turf where the crowd should be showing up. We were doing this "winning the Super Bowl in Atlanta" talk all off season long (which seems unlikely now considering the injuries we have). Well, if you can't beat an AFC team on your home turf, then you don't deserve to go to the Super Bowl in your home stadium with a shot against the AFC championship winner. Why are the Falcons better on the road playing AFC teams lately? Why can't we win a home game against AFC teams? Why can't we ever win in our home red jerseys or black jerseys playing AFC teams? We let a Colts team without Andrew Luck beat us in 2015. We were the only NFC South team with a loss to the Chargers in 2016. We lost to the Chiefs on a pick 2. We couldn't beat a Bills team with Tyrod Taylor at QB. We were the only NFC South team with a loss to the Dolphins with Jay Cutler. Something must change now, and it starts by having success against AFC teams at home again by beating the Bengals this Sunday in a game which is a must win now. Edit: The trend continues.
