The 2003 Atlanta Falcons season is best remembered for the third preseason game, in which QB Michael Vick broke his leg and was done for most of the season. Atlanta had two other QBs take over for a combined 2-10 record (Doug Johnson and Kurt Kittner). Vick returned in week 14 and ended the season with a 3-1 record.
