Forgive me my exuberance, but the Falcons are leading the entire NFC.
It was a closer game for three-and-a-half-quarters than the final score indicates, but the Falcons showed they can gut out a tough win and then pour some gasoline on the flames. I saw a great performance from Matt Ryan, a surprisingly competent Falcons defense that survived despite generating an anemic pass rush, and a quality overall effort. There's a lot to like here, even if it took them way too long to get going.
Bask in the glow of the post-game and keep talking here. Adam and I will hit you with some boom-bap recap action tomorrow.
