    Injuries Hinder Falcons Offense, Saints Prevail

    [​IMG]
    Head coach Mike Smith looks on in horror as Michael Turner is treated on the field for his 2nd major injury on the year. The Falcons had also lost Roddy White early in the 1st due to a dislocated shoulder.

    ATLANTA, GA -

    The Falcons suffered their first loss on the year this sunday after facing the New Orleans Saints at home in the Georgia Dome.

    The loss, which came as a surprise to many experts, moves the Falcons to an 8-1 record. Concerns about the offense have erupted over the last few weeks as the Falcons have failed to score many points. This came back to hurt them yet again this week as they could only muster 13 points against a lowly Saints defense.

    To be fair, the Falcons did lose Roddy White early in the game, as well as Michael Turner late in the 3rd quarter. White is expected to be back next week, however Turner suffered his 2nd abdominal tear on the season, and is expected to miss at least 1 game.

    However, the Falcons had a chance late to win the game but Matt Ryan threw an interception in the end zone to Jabari Greer to seal the Falcons first defeat of the 2011 season.

    FINAL SCORE -​

    SAINTS 17 - FALCONS 13​

    Yup - Brees played like he is supposed to though. That's at least a good sign.
