NFL-Falcons at crossroads after Super Bowl meltdown (Reuters)

The Atlanta Falcons were left to wonder what might have been and what will be of their future in the aftermath of their Super Bowl collapse on Sunday. Atlanta’s 34-28 overtime loss to the New England Patriots was a study in improbability for a talented NFC team that looked destined to hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy. When the Falcons entered the fourth quarter with a 28-9 advantage, it looked to be the start of an exciting future for the franchise which finds itself at a crossroads instead.
