The 2005 Atlanta Falcons season was the franchise's 40th in the National Football League (NFL). It began with the team trying to defend their NFC South division title and 11-5 record in 2004. The Falcons started 6-2, but injuries on defense caused them to finish the second half 2-6 to finish the season 8-8. Bright spots included the Falcons ending their Monday Night Football jinx by going 3-0, and on Thursday, November 24, the Falcons played on Thanksgiving Day for the first time in franchise history with a 27-7 victory over the Detroit Lions. On the next-to-last game of the regular season, the Falcons were eliminated from postseason contention with a 27-24 overtime loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Falcons failed to improve over their 11-5 season, therefore finishing with a .500 record and once again failed to attain back-to-back winning seasons.
