When Was the Last Time the Falcons Made the Super Bowl?

The Atlanta Falcons have never won a Super Bowl and are in search for an elusive title. They will get that chance in Super Bowl LI as the Falcons make their second Super Bowl appearance.

In their only prior Super Bowl, Atlanta took on Denver in Super Bowl XXXIII in 1999. The Broncos came away with the 34-19 victory over the Falcons. It has been 18 years since the Falcons last made the Super Bowl.

In their lone Super Bowl appearance, Denver jumped out to a 17-6 lead at halftime and never relinquished their hold on the game in the blowout win.

Falcons quarterback Chris Chandler had a rough outing against the Broncos. Chandler threw for 219 yards but had three interceptions along with just one touchdown. Star running back Jamal Anderson had 18 carries for 96 yards.

The Falcons faced a Vikings team that had lost just one game that season. They came away with a 30-27 overtime victory in Minnesota to advance to their only Super Bowl. Morten Anderson hit a 38-yard field goal to send the Falcons to the big game:

The 2015-16 Falcons went 11-5 in the regular season and enter the Super Bowl on a six game win streak. They look to make the Super Bowl for the first time in nearly two decades.
