The Atlanta Falcons' 2013 season hasn't been pretty, but one of the beautiful things about professional football is that it is truly a game of inches.
It may sound like coach-speak, but regardless of what the final score says, most NFL matchups are often determined based on what happens in four or five plays during the game.
With that in mind, we looked at the tape and took things a step further by identifying one play from every one of Atlanta's 10 losses this season that we feel did most to determine the outcome each contest.
Are we saying that Atlanta would be 14-0 if these plays had gone differently? No.
However, we are offering evidence to support the conclusion that even though you may be what your record says you are in the NFL, there's still a very thin line between success and failure in this league.
Join us as we review the 10 plays that ruined the Atlanta Falcons' 2013 season.
