The Falcons defense started out well in this one. After nearly picking off David Garrard a few plays earlier, Brent Grimes finally got his hands on one and returned it to about midfield. Matt Ryan and the Falcons offense then took over and quickly took a 3-0 lead on a Matt Bryant field goal.
As for the offense, we're seeing alot more "vintage" Mike Mularkey in this first drive. A couple good runs by Turner and Snelling, a dumpoff pass to Snell, and a rollout play that didn't work. So far there has been no involvement by Falcons receivers at all, outside of a false start on Roddy White.
It's also worth noting that Matt Bosher, who looked a little shaky in the first game, forced a touchback on the game's opening kickoff.
