A 12-play, 56 yard drive that lasted nearly seven minutes ended with a Matt Bryant 42-yard field goal to bring the Atlanta Falcons to within four points of the St. Louis Rams. After a three-and-out on their first possession, the Falcons answered an earlier Rams touchdown with this field goal drive.
Matt Ryan is off to a good start throwing for 60 yards on 5-for-8 passing. Michael Turner has carried five times for 15 yards and Roddy White has grabbed two balls for 30 yards. John Abraham is inactive for this one but Sean Weatherspoon is seeing his first action since Week against the Cleveland Browns.
Trailing early is nothing new for this Falcons team as it seems they don’t really get going until the second quarter of games. It hasn’t hurt them yet since they’ve been able to wear down their less-talented opponents eventually. We’ll find out if they are able to come from behind against this Rams team.
