Not even a full quarter into this ball game, the Falcons defense has picked off two Peyton Manning passes, one interception by starting safeties William Moore and Thomas DeCoud each. Interestingly enough, both passes were attempts to the deep right intended for starting tight end Jacob Tamme.
And as all good teams do, the Falcons capitalized on both turnovers. The first would turn into seven points, courtesy of a one-yard TD run by Michael Turner, and Matt Bryant would tack on three points from 37 yards out following the second pick.
The Broncos offense and Manning have looked a little sloppy so far, and all in all the Falcons could not have asked for a much better start to this ball game.
