NFL: Atlanta Falcons at New York Jets Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

Atlanta Falcons fans, rejoice! Your birds have brought you a victory as a souvenir from their trip to New York City!

Mike Aprile (back at it after his own trip to NYC) and Cory Woodroof of Rise Up Reader are here once again for The Falcoholic Postgame Podcast, with this edition breaking down the Falcons’ 25-20 win over the New York Jets.

After three-straight losses, the birds notched their fourth win of the season in a rainy round of football, which was a boost for their postseason prospects.

In this enlightened exchange, the guys discuss:

  • How the offense got clicking again after a poor showing against the Patriots
  • How Steve Sarkisian in particular better planned for this matchup
  • How the defense, however inconsistent, helped bring the win home
  • How the run defense came alive with new Falcons Ahtyba Rubin in tow
  • Who their game MVPs were on both sides of the ball
  • How this win will affect the team going into their NFC-filled second half of the season
