STATE OF THE FRANCHISE

After a 2012 campaign that wound up with the Falcons falling to the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game, there was reason to be excited about the team's prospects heading into 2013. That sentiment was short-lived, however, as the Falcons stumbled out of the gate, dropping four of their first five games, capped by a devastating home loss to the Jets on Monday Night Football. The team lost more than the game that night, as Pro Bowl wide receiver Julio Jones suffered a foot fracture that kept him out for the remainder of the season. At the time of the injury, Jones led the league in receptions and was second in targets and yards. While the rest of Atlanta's receivers tried to pick up the slack in his absence, the team could never find a groove, especially with Roddy White dealing with nagging injuries for much of the season and a run game that sputtered. The Falcons ended up 4-12, failing to win consecutive games for the first time since 2000.
