The 2007 Atlanta Falcons season was the 42nd season for the team in the National Football League. They finished the 2007 season with a disappointing record of 4 12 and failed to improve upon their 7 9 record in 2006 after finishing third place in the NFC South.

The team attempted to overcome the controversy surrounding starting quarterback Michael Vick and his involvement in an illegal dog fighting ring. Bobby Petrino was hired to help develop Vick into a more complete quarterback, but with Vick's absence, journeyman quarterbacks Joey Harrington and Byron Leftwich were used to patch-in holes. Petrino's game plan didn't fit, both on the field and in the locker room, with veteran players Alge Crumpler and DeAngelo Hall voicing their displeasure.

Petrino later resigned just 13 games into the season to coach the Arkansas Razorbacks. Petrino resigned the day after Michael Vick was sentenced to 23 months in prison and also a day after Petrino coached the Falcons in a 41 14 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football.
