The NFC South is the weakest division in the NFL and the Atlanta Falcons were still somehow in first place with a 4-7 record. Then the New Orleans Saints pulled off a win to up their record to 5-7. The Falcons had to win…and win they did 18-29.
The Falcons were led by Matt Ryan (30-41 for 361 yards a 2 TD’s), DeShawn Jackson (18 carries for 101 yards) and most brilliantly by receiver Julio Jones who hauled in 10 catches for 189 yards and a touchdown.
“When we play consistent football, we can put that type of performance out there,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said after the game.
The Falcons must now face the powerhouse Green Bay Packers. Great tickets are still available and affordable seats are waiting for you!
