Overview: Matt Ryan and the Falcons were stifled in week one by the Pittsburgh Steelers in an ugly 15-9 loss. Since, they have run off three straight with the highlight coming against the Saints in a thrilling overtime victory 27-24. Most recently, they rattled off 16 unanswered points after going down 14-0 to the 49ers in Atlanta.
It wasn’t pretty, but the bottom line is that Atlanta is coming in with a three game winning streak. They might not have impressed anyone outside of their own locker room defeating Frisco, but you have to give these Falcons credit. They faced adversity going down 14-0 in the first quarter and they responded. Matt Ryan, Roddy White, Tony Gonzalez, and the surprisingly good Atlanta defense come into Browns-town with some confidence.
