Hey Falcoholics! On Sunday, the Atlanta Falcons lost to the Los Angeles Rams, 10-37 in horrendous fashion. If you missed the game, or just want to review the tweets from it, look no further. Falcons fans on Twitter have you covered, and without further ado, let’s begin.

The Falcons received the ball to start the game, and it was all downhill from there.

After a nine play drive, the Falcons settle for a field goal. Matt Bryant stepped in to connect on a 52-yarder which gave the Falcons an early 3-0 lead.

The Rams would get the ball next and Greg Zeurlein would miss a 40-yarder before making a 55-yard field goal on their next possession, putting the game at 3-3.

Falcons running back Ito Smith was injured while attempting a block, and left the game on a cart.

The Rams offense was rolling, and with the assistance of questionable calls by the referees, the Rams were able to score on a Todd Gurley touchdown reception, putting their lead at 10-3.

Regardless of what the announcers were saying, nobody was stopping Julio Jones — who finished with 93 receiving yards on the day, and should’ve had more if it wasn’t for some ugly throws.

Greg Zeurlein made another field goal for the Rams, extending their lead to 3-13 heading into halftime. Following halftime, the Rams woke up and scored on their first drive via a Gerald Everett 8-yard touchdown reception.

But, there was some optimism.

And then following a Jared Goff touchdown run, and another field goal, the negativity was back as the Rams held a 3-30 lead. Oh, and did I mention Matt Ryan left the game with an ankle injury?

A Matt Schaub to Austin Hooper connection gave the Falcons their first, and only touchdown on the day. narrowing the Rams lead to 10-30.

Following a punt return fumble by Russell Gage which resulted in a Rams’ touchdown, the Rams won the game 10-37.

And that’s the game, folks. The Falcons are now 1-6 and haven’t even played a divisional opponent yet. The team will have a home game next week against the Seattle Seahawks before entering their much needed bye week. Regardless of what happens, thanks for riding with us Falcoholics and checking out all of our content.
