National Football League
The Atlanta Falcons face the Philadelphia Eagles in round two of the NFC playoffs on 13 January at Lincoln Financial Field. If you are not able to attend the game in person, here are 10 of the best sports bars in Atlanta and another 10 in other parts of the country.
The Atlanta Falcons have advanced to round two of the NFC playoffs after upsetting the Los Angeles Rams at Los Angeles Memorial Stadium in the wild-card round.
The one-seeded Philadelphia Eagles are heavily favoured over the number-six seed, Atlanta Falcons.
Can the Falcons pull off another upset against a partial crowd in Philly to advance to round three?
The Atlanta Falcons have a loyal following in Georgia, and their rowdy fans can be counted on to provide a “Dome Field” advantage at the Georgia Dome, which is located in downtown Atlanta.

The Atlanta Falcons, however, do not have much of a national following. It can therefore be a bit of a challenge to find an Atlanta Falcons friendly bar outside of Georgia.
I did, however, turn up a few! Please leave a comment in the COMMENT box below if you know of any more!
