Who says the Falcons lack killer instinct?

I recently discovered the awesomeness that comes with sharing tables imported from Pro Football Reference.com. So every now and then if I stumble across a pretty cool or interesting stat involving the Falcons, I now have an easy way of sharing it with the world.

For this one, I first came across this a few months ago following the loss to the 49ers where many accusations were floating around about the Falcons lacking a “killer instinct” to finish games. Well, here’s my counter-argument to that nonsense.

Here are the records for teams since 2008 in one-score regular season games:

So if the Falcons win more close games than any other team in the league under Mike Smith and Matt Ryan, then apparently every other team in the league also lacks a killer instinct…
