The 1984 Atlanta Falcons season was the franchise's 19th season in the National Football League (NFL). The season saw Atlanta attempting to improve on its previous record of 7-9 from 1983. The Falcons would split their first 6 games, but then suffer a franchise-record 9-game losing streak to knock the team down to 3-12. The Falcons would win their finale against the Philadelphia Eagles and finish the season 4-12, their worst record since 1976.


NFL supplemental draft

The National Football League held a draft for college seniors who had already signed with either the United States Football League (USFL) or the Canadian Football League (CFL) on June 5, 1984, in New York City. The draft was for players who would have been eligible for the regular 1984 NFL draft, but who had already signed a contract with either a team from the USFL or CFL prior to it.
