The new episode discusses Monday night's emphatic win, which includes glowing reviews about the running game, offensive line, and more. A special guest joins us as well.

It was one of the more memorable weeks in recent Falcons' history. They went into hostile territory and won definitively against their bitter rival. The podcast is buzzing following a great win, although remember that the defense is still a "work in progress" (or trainwreck).

The Falcoholic's Jake Bennett joins Falcfans' Aaron Freeman and I to discuss Monday night's victory. We get into the running game's success, as the balance between Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman is becoming a hot topic. The defense's shortcomings can't go unnoticed. Why can't the defense contain tight ends or generate more than a few pressures is also examined. We try to remain ecstatic, as convincing road wins against divisional opponents don't come around very often.

The Ringer's Robert Mays returns to the show, as well. We discuss Atlanta's offensive improvements from the offensive line to running back duo. Mays is surprised to find out about the fan base's animosity towards Kyle Shanahan. Eventually, he looks at the Falcons' upcoming challenges, before we talk about what's going on around the league. The recent changes in his career, along with past memorable experiences at Grantland and Sports Illustrated are covered as well.
