Best Answer

Actually, the Atlanta Falcons were almost a team in the AFC. On June 7, 1965, local businessmen had made a deal with the American Football League (AFL) to make the Atlanta Falcons a member of the AFL. However, in 1966, Atlanta declared that their new football team would be joining the National Football League (NFL).
