Falcons Vs. Broncos Update: Atlanta Up 27-14 With Just Over Ten Minutes Left

Since the second half began, this game has remained very much in the Falcons' hands.

Though the Broncos failed to give up any more turnovers, the Falcons defense did hold them scoreless through the entirety of the third quarter.

The Falcons, though stopped on two of their drives, managed to put together a nice six-play, 64-yard scoring drive capped off by a Roddy White touchdown catch. White would three passes for 45 yards on that drive alone, and top 100 yards for the third time in his last four MNF appearances.

But going into the fourth quarter, Peyton Manning and the Broncos embarked on a massive 15-play, 88 yard drive that sapped a lot of strength out of the defense, and they capped it off with a two-yard Willis McGahee TD run.

With 11 minutes left in this game, the Falcons will try to maintain possession and hold on to their 13-point lead.
