Still not over the win

Official Eagles Reporter

By Roxaan Herrera // @rxnlzbth

Eagles 15 – Falcons 10

What. A. Game! I admit I shed a few tears out of sheer relief after that game.  It was such an emotional roller coaster from beginning to end. 

Not to be a negative Nancy, but I have to point out the obvious.  Playing like he did the first half, quarterback Nick Foles, will not be able to get away with that against the Minnesota Vikings. Luckily, the Philadelphia Eagles’ defense came through and it resulted in a win.

Philadelphia Eagles vs Atlanta Falcons – Preview

Official Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

By Roxaan Herrera // @rxnlzbth

NFL Playoffs – NFC Divisional Round

I’m sure by now everyone has heard about how the Philadelphia Eagles are the first number one seed to have a higher probability to lose to a number six seed. In this case, the Atlanta Falcons.

There have been so many stats all week about this particular game, that I have toned down my social media usage by a ton because I didn’t want to hear any negativity. I personally don’t like the statistics these sports analysts come up with because most of them are useless, and as I always say “rules are meant to be broken”. Except, in this case, statistics are meant to be broken.

Seattle battles back but falls just short on Monday Night Football

Official Seahawks Reporter

By Shannon Sanchez  // @ShannonSanchez3

Atlanta Falcons 34 – Seattle Seahawks 31

There is gnashing of teeth in Seattle. There is pulling hair and screaming at TV announcers. When did Jon Gruden start sounding so condescending? Was it the first turnover by quarterback Russell Wilson? Or was it the first questionable call that head coach Pete Carroll called on a fake field goal? We had every chance to win this game, and somehow we came up short. Literally.

Patriots Dominate Falcons and Fog in Super Bowl Rematch

Official Patriots Reporter

By Traci McCartney // @traciamc

New England 23 – Atlanta 7

Sunday’s game was the highly anticipated rematch of Super Bowl LI’s Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots, to be held at Gillette Stadium.

Everyone has always assumed that the lighthouse and fog horn were just there for ambiance, but on Sunday night they might have actually proved helpful. The fog rolled into Foxborough and clouded visibility from the NBC cameras and coaches up in the booth as well as some fans, but it didn’t seem to bother the Patriots. They scored another win bringing their record to 5-2 and finally dominated their visiting opponent the way they’ve been expected to all season.

With a final score of 23-7, the Patriots sent the Falcons home without the win they had been vying for after losing the Super Bowl to New England in overtime last February.

Touchdown!! NFL TD Celebrations Are Back

Official Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

While a lot of the NFL season has been draped in controversy, there is something that we’re missing.

The celebrations!  The NFL has graciously allowed celebrations back in the game.  As long as they’re not too outlandish.   (Right OBJ??) They have been a pretty welcome sight for fans and players alike!

Shoutout to The Checkdown where most of these came from!

Buffalo Is Entering Another Dimension

By Mary Pesarchick  // @HeyMom418

Bills 23 – Falcons 17

“You are about to enter another dimension.

A dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. 

A journey into a wondrous land of imagination…”  

It began after the final second elapsed on the Bills 23-17 win over the (formerly) undefeated Atlanta Falcons. All around Western New York, a low murmur of voices were expressing wonderment. Disbelief. Excitement. Almost every caller to the local radio post-game shows began their comments with, “I know there’s a lot of the season left, but do you think…?”  Or, “I know I shouldn’t be getting my hopes up yet, but…” Or, “The team wasn’t supposed to be any good this year. How do you explain…?”

It does feel as if we’ve entered the Twilight Zone. Staring at the AFC East standings, seeing the Buffalo Bills, 3-1, all alone at the top of the heap, is nothing if not surreal. The previous week’s win over the Denver Broncos was a terrific accomplishment for coach Sean McDermott’s team. But getting a win on the road, against last year’s NFC Champions is something else altogether.

The Pride Report: Week 3

Official Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield //  @Mom23RN

This week, the road to Super Bowl 52 brought the defending NFC Champion Atlanta Falcons to Detroit. This was going to be a great showing of how the 2-0 Lions would match up to some of the best talent in the division.   At first, the game almost looked like Atlanta was going to run away with it, but safety Glover Quin got the Lions back in the game with a quick pick six of Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan.  It looked like quarterback Matthew Stafford was up to his usual 4th quarter come back antics, however a crazy, arbitrary rule kept wide receiver Golden Tate from scoring a last second touchdown.  The Falcons came away with the win, and handed the Lions a heartbreaking loss.

King Of The Pride:  Safety Glover Quin.  Quin’s pick six pretty much kept the game from getting out of hand and gave life to the crowd at Ford Field.  It appeared that he came out of nowhere to intercept Ryan.  Honorable mentions go to kicker Matt Prater and corner back Darius Slay. Prater was perfect on his field goals including two from over 50 yards away.  Slay was able to pick off Matt Ryan twice in the game.  According to ESPN Stats & Info, Matt Ryan had previously gone 309 passes without an interception, but had 3 today.
