Chris Redman went 15-for-22 for 142 yards and Matt Bryant connected on three field goals for the Falcons, who went 2-2 in the preseason and begin their regular season in Pittsburgh on September 12.

After a scoreless first quarter, Bryant connected on a 31-yard field goal to give Atlanta the lead, but Bolen punched the ball into the end zone later in the frame for a 7-3 advantage.

Scobee and Bryant traded field goals later in the frame and it was a 10-6 game at the break.

Scobee added a 49-yard field goal in the third to stake Jacksonville to a 13-6 advantage.

Bryant’s 25-yard boot between the uprights in the fourth accounted for the final score.
