In the game we’ve all been waiting to see from the Atlanta Falcons for weeks, they took care of business in a big way and that (maybe) could be a good sign.
Finally!!!! This is the game we’ve all been waiting to see for weeks out of the Atlanta Falcons.
If there was one word to describe the 2017 version of this team, most people would say inconsistent. One game, they’re just squeaking by the Bears then the next game they’re dominating Aaron Rodgers and Packers.
We all know about the 10 second runoff that saved the Falcons in Detroit and the 4 losses in 5 games that followed.

But for one Sunday, in what many considered the “Game of the Week”, we didn’t see the inconsistent Falcons.
We saw flashes of that maybe, just maybe, that this team can get on a run that made last season so magical. A defense that physically dominated Dallas….Thank you Adrian Clayborn. A run game that showed flashes of its 2016 greatness.
Matt Ryan, who after throwing any early interception, which wasn’t his fault, play flawless football afterwards, while also becoming the fastest QB to throw for 40,000 yards in NFL history.
This is the Falcons team we know and love.
The Falcons team that lost 4 out 5 games previously was an unwelcome sight. In a must-win situation coming into the game, this Falcons team showed up and showed out. For one Sunday, there were no stupid mistakes that cost the Falcons the game.
For one Sunday, there was no worrying about a blown lead.
For one Sunday, and hopefully for these next 7 games, the Falcons finally played the complete game we’ve all been waiting for weeks.
