    Atlanta has been known to be very aggressive towards building up their roster and have played the role as paper champs the past 2 seasons. But this years aquisition of RB Demarco Murray may have put the Falcons over the top. Murray provided the explosive and consistent running game the Falcons have been lacking. In his Atlanta debut Murray ran for 174yds 4 Td on 21 carries. Relieving the pressure from Matt Ryan who has played erratic the past 3 seasons, but was able to take advantage with 11/14 273yds 3 TD in the air and more importantly playing mistake free.

    While Atlanta had success on in the run game, Tampa Bay suffered the opposite with only 25yds on the ground and forced to go to the air early after falling behind. Atlanta was able to score early and often with the first score coming from new comer WR Jon Baldwin. Atlanta's defense forced 5 turnovers and recorded 3 sacks.

    gg PepperNY and stick around. Wish you would have said something earlier about the running game, nothing was done intentional. See ya week 9....
