The NFL is investigating the Atlanta Falcons using artificial crowd noise in the Georgia Dome over the past two seasons, according to ESPN>

The Falcons could be fined and lose draft picks.

"We were informed during the season that the league office is looking into crowd noise during our games," Falcons team spokesman Reggie Roberts said. "We have cooperated fully with them, and we're awaiting the outcome."

The Falcons were accused of piping in crowd noise while the opposing offense was huddling.
