    Detroit -​

    Coming into this week, Falcons were coming off a closely contested loss against the Dallas Cowboys in week 5. They were looking to get over .500 with a road win in Detroit in week 6, and were determined to do so at all costs. It would not be easy, but the Falcons would get it done.​

    The Falcon defense was very effective in stopping the pass of Matt Stafford, holding him to 7 of 16 passing for 177 yards, 3 INTs and only 1 TD.​

    On the other hand, Matt Ryan had a nice game and effectively found his main target Roddy White deep in the Detroit secondary. Ryan finished the game 11 for 18, with 150 yards and 3 TDs with 1 INT.​

    White surprisingly out performed his WR adversary Calvin Johnson in this one. Johnson, the league's leading receiver, finished the game with only 2 receptions for 69 yards. White, on the other hand, finished with 5 receptions for 121 yards and a late TD that put the Falcons ahead for good.​
