    The Falcons looked like a different team today as Coach O'Shea picks up his first user victory of the season. Atlanta was able to win the turnover battle +1 and that was a bug deal for the league leading turniver machine of an offense. Matt Ryan only threw 2 picks, which is a blessing compared to his 5 int game average, but it was the Falcons defense that was teh story.

    Atlanta kept teh Cowboys out of the endzone forcing Dallas to settle for FG's 3/4. The only TD's allowed were on the defensive side for Dallas. Atlanta was able to put pressure on ROmo recording 3 sacks and forcing 3 ints. The bend but don't break approach worked as Dallas was able to move the ball, but struggled in the redzone.

    Atlanta found a ground game, Michael Turner eclipsed the 100yd mark for only the second time finishing the day with 111yds and 2 TD. Ryan threw for 275yds 2 TD with Julio Jones being his favorite target 6 rec 154yds 1 TD.

    This was a close battle from the start, but the turnovers and Dallas's inability to put teh ball in the endzone where too much for them to overcome. Atlanta is looking to have one of the biggest turnarounds in NFL history as they still belive a playoff birth is possible.

    Dallas secondary could not stop Julio Jones early or Michael Turner late. The offensive line struggled again too. This team is so inconsistent that it's impossible to predict what you're gonna get from week to week.
