    Week 11 matchup Falcons visit Tampa Bay for a divisional rivalry matchup. Things looked good early on for the Falcons forcing a 3 and out on defense during the Bucs first offensive series. The dirty birds came out with a mission on their first series to limit the mental mistakes and that's just what they did but manage scoring no points. Things change quickly as Tampa made adjustments on both sides of the ball ending the 1st qt 7-0 Bucs.
    Second quarter was interesting as the Bucs scored again with great QB play from rookie Mike Glennon. The Falcons quickly got things together as Coach Witness made a quick speech to get his guys motivated. Matt Ryan started to warm up with the offense scoring 14 points in the 2nd qt as things finally started to go there way. Before the half Glennon threw a interception and the Falcons managed to get down field scoring 21 in the 2nd total halftime 14-28 ATL.
    Second half was smash mouth football and not so much scoring for both teams. 3rd qt was a turnover machine Glennon and Matt throwing int's back and forth. The lone score for this quarter was the Falcons field goal attempt from K Matt Bryan. 4th qt was firing back up with the Falcons having a lead but that will soon be in jeopardy as the Bucs continued to fight back. Glennon got hurt so backup Ponder had to come in and help lead his team to a victory. Coming into the game late Ponder helped put a nice drive together but later thrown a int that will help secure the game as the Falcons scored 14 points end of game score 21-38 ATL.

    Week 1 Car vs Atl
    Division rivalry Carolina Panthers in town with new leadership. After just a season ago going deep into the playoffs the team was different coming into the dome. E.J and Matty both had a thing against each other. Both thrown 4 touchdowns with 2 interceptions a piece.
    The Falcons jumped ahead early with both good defense and offense play forcing turnovers and scoring. Momentum was in Atlanta way until good defensive play from the Panthers secondary causing a pick which later lead to a touchdown. William Moore forced a early turnover forcing a fumble from Barner.
    Buffalo second half a different team showed up Manuel connected with Woods on a 44 yard touchdown strike to start the 2nd half. Matt got the crowd back up after getting a 1 on 1 matchup with Julio lead to a deep ball score.That touchdown helped the dirty birds have a comfortable lead to help secure the game.

    Stats:

    E.J Manuel 13/20 240 4 tds 2 int
    D. Henderson 2 rec 65 yds 1 td
    D. Williams 8 tack 1 int

    M. Ryan 20/31 336 yds 4 tds 2 int
    J. Jones 4 rec 105 yds 2 tds
    A. Samuel 0 tack 2 int

    well they kind of worked! still 2 ints and atl has a great run game. very commited to the run and once you try to play the run its one on one for Julio and he can go deep was a frustrating loss as we were about to go up 14-7 before the half and threw a pick that flipped that around.

    panthers need to limit the turners and get more of a run game going and hopefully we will be alright in our next contest

    Week 2 NYG vs ATL
    The winning continues for the Falcons but boy was this game stunning at times. Today's game was a tough game for both teams defense. Both sides forcing one turnover going to get the edge over there opponent didn't go so well. From a offensive stand point you couldn't be any happier but to just get a win.
    This game was going to be win off of special teams and defense. Giants had a nice special team scaring the Falcons almost breaking on every run but managed to score off a KO. Gmen punted once while the Falcons didnt get one punt off thats the type of game that was played. The Gmen was getting good returns from kick off return personnel.
    Another battle of the quarterbacks Eli vs Matt both throwing over 240 yards. Eli had a couple big drops from stud Victor Cruz in the endzone which didn't really get to help the Giants finish the birds. Matt got hot with Pettigrew as he help get the Falcons on the scoreboard. Both stud qb's did screw up on one play both throwing crucial interceptions.
    Falcons run game didn't even exist sadly Matt and fullback Collins can only get into the endzone. Rodgers was held in check with hid 1.9 yards average. Giants got things done rotating backs Wilson carried the chunk of load but Brown got the solo rushing td. Blount came in making a few crucial big third down conversion.
    Passing attack lethal as the Falcons fight from behind and the Gmen fight to keep the lead. Giants V. Cruz had a big day 100 yards. Torching my young corners wherever they lined up at. Falcons hard to say B. Pettigrew had a great game catching 2 tds that helped the birds rally. J. Jones had his consecutive game with 2 tds one is the game winning drive to put the Falcons on top with less than a minute remaining. Gg Gmen best of luck for remaining of the season.
