Falcons Vs. Chargers Update: Atlanta Still In Control 20-3 After Second DeCoud INT

The Falcons offense has stalled somewhat in the second half of this football game, but the defense has kept up their stifling performance.

Atlanta allowed the Chargers to put three points on the board after Philip Rivers led San Diego on a 12-play, 45 yard drive that ended in a Nate Kaeding field goal.

But just as Rivers was gaining momentum, Thomas DeCoud would pick off another pass, raising his forced turnover total to three on the day. The team's turnover differential stands at an impressive +10 on the season.

On offense, the Falcons have struggled to get much momentum going this half. But in the wake of Rivers' second mistake of the day, Matt Ryan is in business on the right side of midfield early in the fourth quarter.

Update: Ryan was intercepted in the end zone by Antoine Cason
