Also per Breech: The Falcons entered the 2015 season knowing they'd be facing opponents that
compiled a collective .409 winning percentage in 2014
. They'll enter 2016 knowing they'll face opponents that compiled a collective .555 winning percentage last season. That's something of a difference, eh?
The 2015 Falcons played five games against teams that would qualify for postseason. Houston, Washington and Minnesota lost in the wild card round. (The other two games were against Carolina, duh.)
