    riding high off their 1st win of the season the falcons wanted to stay consistent on offense and limit the turn overs so of course on the 1st falcons drive matty ice throws a big int that lead to the seahawks 1st TD and a 7-0 lead. jonathan stewart started slow in this game managing just 8 or so yds on 5 carries but the falcons stayed the course as stewart would eventually heat up and finished the game with a strong 18 carry 120 yd performance that leaves the pundits to still wonder"what took coach gutcheck so long to make the switch".matt ryan played with confidence after his early miscue to attack the seahawk def when needed and paid of with another good performance by ryan as he put up 16-21-291 and 3td's-1 INT.on the other side of the ball vaughn had a nice game himself at the QB position going 17-23 252-2TD-1 INT.but the int came on the final drive as the seahawks were driving down the field as the falcons were trying to protect thier 31-24 lead to try and send the game into O.T. by another player that was apart of coach gutchecks roster shuffle last week.kirk morrison made the most of his 2nd start this season and assured coach he made the right move demoting chase blackburn at the MLB position.the key was limiting lynch's carrries because he was a produtive 5yds a pop but only had 11 carries in the game and vaughn did all he could to shoulder the load and did so with a great game completing 70% of his passes and coverting a HUGE 3rd and 21 with a 88yd strike to butler to take the lead at that point of the game but matty ice would respond to re take the lead and the def did the rest on the final drive.great game lamar good to have you back in the league and good luck the rest of the season
