Falcons 9, Tampa Bay 7: Hey, the Falcons are winning!

Here's hoping this holds.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons have had some rocky moments in today's matchup with the Bucs, and yet they took a lead just before the half on Shayne Graham's third field goal of the day.

It's not great that Ryan's been sacked multiple times. There have been some drops. Settling for 3 on every drive isn't ideal, but as long as the team is winning, I'm not going to complain too much.

Defensively, the team has tightened up a little despite some missed tackles and lapses. A well-timed interception on a tipped ball by Desmond Trufant put the team in position to score just before the half. That's the kind of play Dan Quinn expects from this team, and it's certainly the kind of opportunity the Falcons will need to continue to create if they want to pull off this win.

Discuss the second half of the game, and hopefully celebrate an eventual win, in the comments.
