The 2019 season was the Atlanta Falcons' 54th in the National Football League (NFL), their third playing their home games at Mercedes-Benz Stadium and their fifth under head coach Dan Quinn. They tried to improve on their 7-9 season from 2018, and return to the playoffs for the first time since 2017. However, the Falcons stumbled out of the gate and had their worst start for the first time in 16 years with a 1-7 record to begin the campaign.

After a loss at home to the rival New Orleans Saints, the Falcons suffered their second consecutive losing season and were mathematically eliminated from playoff contention for the second year in a row. However, the Falcons went 6-2 over the final half of the season, tied for the best record in the NFC during that span, to finish the season with a 7-9 record for the second straight year and 2nd in the NFC South.
