    Special Teams, Kerley avoid upset in 42-34 Thriller Over Rival Birds
    When the Saints acquired Kerley in week 3, they didnt expect him to return 4 kickoffs for touchdowns in 3 games since Sproles injury
    Saints defense was exposed for over 400 yards in the Georgia Dome, as Matt Ryan completed 23-34 passes for 329 yards but threw 2 costly picks in the 42-34 defeat to the Saints. After Matt Bryant kicked a 22 yard field goal, Kerley took his 1st of 2 touchdowns 105 yards to the house for a 7-3 lead. After the Saints allowed another long drive for a fg and then a 3 and out, Steven Action Jackson scored on a 3 yard run to give the Falcons a 13-7 lead.

    Kerley was not done, taking the next kick 105 yards again to the house and with 2 minutes remaining in the 1st half the Saints had 0 yards of offense, but led 14-13. After a Matt Ryan interception Drew Brees found Lance Moore for a 57 yard touchdown and a 21-13 lead. The Falcons responded back with a 19 yard strike to Julio Jones and a 21-20 deficit at the half.

    Lance Moore did his best Jeremy Kerley impression by taking a punt on the left hash and with a return set up for the right weaved his way 80 yards for a score, giving the Saints a 2 touchdown deficit the Falcons could not recover from. The Falcons ran 55 plays from scrimmage while the Saints rain only 28.
