    FALCONS WIN AS TIME EXPIRES, 17-14

    Matt Bryant's 20 YD FG puts Atlanta on top for good.​

    Atlanta, GA -​

    The Falcons knew they had a stiff test in week 2 as they were taking on a tough Eagles team that dismantled the Rams in their week 1 showing. The 2 NFC contenders would do battle under the bright lights of the Georgia Dome.​

    Starting in place of the injured Michael Turner, Jacquizz Rodgers made the most of his first career start and scored early in the 1st quarter on a well blocked 28 yard rush. He would finish the day with 21 carries for 120 yards and a TD.​

    Atlanta would jump to a 14-0 lead in the 2nd quarter after QB Matt Ryan hooked up with Roddy White for a 7 yard TD strike on a 3rd down pass play in the red-zone.​

    The Eagles would answer back before the half, however, by scoring a late 2nd quarter screen pass TD. Ronnie Brown took the short screen from Vick and trucked Falcons safety William Moore on his way to the end zone.​

    HALF TIME: FALCONS 14 - EAGLES 7​

    The 2nd half would would be even more tightly contested than the 1st. With the last play of the 3rd quarter, the Eagles tied the game at 14 a piece after QB Michael Vick connected on a 7 yard pass to TE Brent Celek.​

    The Falcons would start the 4th quarter with a 3 and out drive that forced them to play the field position game. They would hold Philadelphia on their next offensive drive as well, and got the ball back with around 3 minutes to go on the clock. They found their stride offensively this drive powered by a nice rushing attack that got them into the Eagles territory with around a minute to go. With each play they inched closer and closer. Soon as the Eagles ran out of timeouts, Atlanta ran the clock down to :04 and lined up for a 20 yard FG to seal the deal.​

    Matt Bryant, no stranger to pressure kicking situations, nailed the kick perfectly and the Falcons walked away with a hard fought victory over a very tough opponent. This match could have given the fans an early sneak preview of what could easily be a playoff match up come December.​

    FALCONS 17 - EAGLES 14​
