Falcons Give New Orleans their Funeral
Yes, that just did happen. The Atlanta Falcons played inspired football and played one of their best games of the entire Mike Smith era. Fairly ironic isn’t it? The defense got more sacks in one game than they have almost all year. It’s hard to imagine that Smith saved his job in one game and he’s still fighting up a huge mountain, but the Falcons played great and their defense might have shown their best since Smith has been head coach.
Perhaps they’re playing for their head coach and it’s mostly emotional, but they played really good and found a rare win in New Orleans and gave them their own “funeral.” How sweet it was to eliminate the Saints on their own turf and having Osi Umenyiora drive it home with a last minute touchdown was icing on the cake. Somehow, the Falcons have a chance to win the division at home vs. the hated SCam Newton and the goon Panthers.
So, what say you Falcons fans……………………..
