Record Day for Falcons

Hapless Bucs or not, yesterday’s 45-24 destruction of Tampa Bay was a record setting day for the Falcons, and earned ATL the #5 seed in the playoffs. Records broken:

42 first half points; most every in a half.

Ryan single season passing yards pushed Jeff Georgia out of the top spot.

Turner now holds the career rushing TD mark.

Roddy White (another game with a dropped pass) earned the all-time receiving yards record.

Next up, the Giants; NY is currently favored by 3 points (i.e. home field advantage). Depending on which ATL team shows up, the Falcons have a realistic chance of advancing. ATL could be one and done, but I still would rather play the inconsistent Giants than go back to New Orleans for the first game.

Go Falcons!
