Halftime: Falcons Hold The Ball For 22 Minutes; Tied 14-14

The Saints only got to play with the ball for eight minutes in the first half as the Falcons forced two turnovers and tied the game late in the second quarter.

Tony Gonzalez has made up for the extra coverage rolled towards Roddy White with 5 catches for 79 yards and a touchdown. Neither ground game has been able to get rolling but Michael Turner leads all rushers with 36 yards on 16 carries.

If not for a special teams breakdown and a blown coverage, the Falcons would have this game well in hand. Uncle Mo is definitely in the Falcons corner as we head to the third quarter.
