They entered the year as a favorite to make the playoffs and instead crashed to the bottom of the NFC West thanks to a putrid offense that never scored more than 17 points in a game. The ugliness extended off the field as coach Norm Van Brocklin was fired in midseason after trying to start a fight with a writer. Still, there were many highlights along the way, including a close win over the Giants on the road, a last-second triumph over the Bears and a victory over the Packers to close out the campaign.All of the highs and lows from the exciting season are here. A full recap and box score from every game is included, so you can follow the exploits of Van Brocklins team as it hit rock bottom before bouncing back strong in the years to follow.As an added bonus, links to many video highlights are included to add more depth to the story of the 1974 Falcons. Whether you are a die-hard Falcons fan or an NFL history buff, you will enjoy this look back at the 1974 Atlanta Falcons.
