ATLANTA, GA (NBCNewsChannel)--You can add the Atlanta Falcons to the short list of teams under investigation by the NFL.  
According to ESPN'S Adam Schefter, the league is looking into the Falcons' organization for piping artificial crowd noise into the Georgia Dome for the past two seasons. 
The Falcons' Game Operations Department is accused of feeding in the extra noise while the opposing team was huddling and trying to call plays.
If the accusations prove true, the Falcons could be fined and possibly lose a draft pick.
ITs unclear how much of an advantage this gave the Falcons, as the team has posted a combined home record of 6-10 over the past two seasons. 
However, it was significant enough to warrant a league investigation.
