Falcons win a close one in New Jersey


What a slug fest! Mark Sanchez was the difference maker in this contest, just not the difference maker that Jets fans wanted; 3 interceptions and a very costly one at that late in the game sealed his teams doom and the Falcons can fly home to Georgia winners.

 Matt Ryan played very steadily and did not throw a pick in the game while completing a huge pass to Tony Gonzalez to seal the 10-7 Falcons win.

 Rex Ryan’s defense was all over the field today, limiting the Falcons offense at every turn, and the secondary was great today limiting catches to minimal yards and making tackles at all the right times. It was however the Falcons defense that after giving up a bomb in the first half to Braylon Edwards made the plays when called upon and a blocked field goal and a missed field goal kept the birds in the game.
