I had a tough time picking a play of the game, but ultimately I settled on the Falcons' first touchdown of the game versus the Vikings.

Starting from their own 20, the Falcons built up a head of steam thanks to powerful rushing by Michael Turner and a surgical strike from Matt Ryan to Tony Gonzalez. After a dumb holding call on Joe Hawley and a one yard run by Jason Snelling set them up with a 2nd and 19 from the Viking 27, the magic began.

Matt Ryan found Harry Douglas on a slant across the middle, a fairly easy play to run and one that's been mighty successful with HD of late. Douglas caught it and proceeded to sojourn 27 yards into the end zone, running over linebacker EJ Henderson in the process.

This one had something for everyone: Those who like a simple pass-and-catch, those who like to see a receiver truck a much larger defender and those that like watching someone like Douglas use his moves to get out of trouble. And it ended with the Falcons up 6-0, giving them a lead they would not relinquish through the rest of the game.

So that's my choice. What's yours?
