Observations:  Just a great, great play call here.  Cardinals are showing blitz and bring it all out, with 7 men coming.  With the Falcons sending out five men on routes, that leaves Jason Snelling completely uncovered.  Ryan reads it properly and makes the quick dump-off to his outlet.

From there it's just an easy rumble.  The blitzers are all up field of Snelling and their momentum is taking them the wrong direction to get back into the play, leaving only two men in a position to make the stop.  Tony Gonzalez blocks off one of them, and Snelling simply takes an angle where the second man has no shot at him.  Another easy touchdown in what is rapidly becoming a blowout.
