Word to 2001...
The Falcons won't be on Atlanta television Sunday.
The game against the San Francisco 49ers will be blacked out locally because the Falcons failed to sell out the Georgia Dome 72 hours before kickoff, as required by NFL television rules.
This marks the first time since Arthur Blank bought the team in 2002 that a Falcons home game has failed to sell out.
