The Atlanta Falcons dropped to 1-4 after suffering a lopsided 53-32 loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday. In a season Dan Quinn is coaching for his job, fans already have no confidence the season can get turned around.

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Braves have been forced into a win-or-go-home Game 5 after falling to the St. Louis Cardinals, 5-4, in extra innings on Monday. And the memories of past Game 5's have entered the minds of Braves fans. (The Braves are 0-3 in Game 5's they've played at home). 

So which fan base has it worse?

"If you're a Hawks' fan, you've got a lot of misery. If you're a Falcons' fan, lot of misery. Nobody's had it worse than Braves' fans," Andy Bunker said. 

"And I know they've won one World Series. I know that, but getting closer as they did forever and ever, and they way that it's gone. Like, the heartbreaking and heart-wrenching ways in which the Braves have lost throughout the history of this franchise. Especially over the last 30 years, I'm sorry. They've had it the worst."

Randy McMichael disagrees and points to the worst loss in NFL history.

"(Braves' fans) have had it bad. I don't know if you can say anything's worse than losing the Super Bowl the way the Falcons did," McMichael said.
