  • The Falcons skated past the Cards by 34, the NFL's stoutest margin of vict'ry since week 17 of last year when the Jets and Vikings both won by 37.
  • ↵
  • This was the biggest Falcons-sponsored pummeling since last year's week five, when Atlanta beat San Fran by 35.

  • Only eight wins in team history can meet or exceed this one's margin.
  • ↵
  • The Birds have topped 40 points only 24 times in their hist'ry, with seven of those in the past decade.
  • ↵
  • Atlanta's gaudiest-ever win was a 62-7 win over the Saints in 1973, and we play the Saints next week, which reminds me it's almost time to fire up a sweet, sticky rivalry week game stream oozing with gooey, buttered hate on a stick.
