5 things to know about the Falcons on Monday

Here are five things to know about the Falcons on Monday: 

1. Up next: The Falcons (4-8) play the Packers (4-7-1) at 1 p.m. Sunday at Lambeau Field. The Packers fired head coach Mike McCarthy on Sunday. Just two seasons ago, the Falcons and Packers played in the NFC championship game at the Georgia Dome.

2. Blank update: Since blowing the 28-3 lead in Super Bowl LI, the Falcons are 15-15 under head coach Dan Quinn. But owner Arthur Blank told reporters that he still had faith in his coach and his general manager after the 26-16 loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

3. Playoffs: The Falcons have a one percent chance of making the playoffs.

4. Draft position: If the NFL draft were held today, the Falcons would hold the sixth overall spot. 

5. Ryan’s worst game ever: In the 26-16 loss to the Ravens on Sunday, the Falcons were out-gained 366 yards to 131 yards. It was their lowest output since being held to 105 yards by the 49ers in a 26-7 loss on Dec. 12, 1999.
