Eighty-nine regular-season wins, five postseason berths, three division titles, a conference championship and a Super Bowl appearance. The last decade - from 2010 to 2019 - has been without a doubt the most successful one in the Atlanta Falcons' 53 years of existence.

The Falcons will celebrate that prolific run, which ties them for the ninth-most wins over the last 10 seasons, by honoring the players who made it possible with the creation of an all-decade team.

2010-19: Most regular-season wins

The Atlanta Falcons 2010-19 All-Decade Team presented by American Family Insurance will be comprised of 12 offensive and defensive players, 11 starters and a flex position awarded to the highest-vote getter that is not part of the starting 11. The team will also feature five spots awarded to a kicker, punter, returner, special teamer and long snapper.

The panel of voters consisted of members of the national and local media, Falcons alumni and staff.

Over the next two weeks, the Atlanta Falcons 2010-19 All-Decade Team members will be unveiled on through a series of articles, videos, photo galleries and it will include commentary from the voting panel. Here is the scheduled content:
