    More bad news in a game that could use less of it on the injury front. Defensive end John Abraham was carted from the sideline in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury.

    The Falcons’ locker room after Saturday night’s 31-18 win over the Detroit Lions was the same as it had been all year after the previous 13 wins. Happy. Loud. Fun.

    Quarterback Matt Ryan is having quite a game with just one half gone in Saturday night’s tilt in Detroit.

    2 years, 2 months ago

    Mondays at the office this year have been generally pleasant. Not last Monday. Last Monday was the pits.

    2 years, 2 months ago

    The Falcons did their part with a 34-0 win over the New York Giants on Sunday, but two teams that could have helped at least guarantee the Falcons one of the top two seeds in the NFC during the postseason didn’t come through. The Falcons needed the Packers to lose to the Bears and the [...]
