Hey Falcoholics! Our Atlanta Falcons traveled west to take on the San Francisco 49ers, and the game was absolutely insane, in a good way. Just in case you missed the game or you’d just like to read some tweets, Twitter has you covered! Let’s recap the game.

Falcons would receive the ball first, as they have the past six games.

..and they would punt.

The 49ers would go 3 & out thanks largely to a Vic Beasley sack!

They would then punt it back to San Francisco, which they’d drive down field and score on a Raheem Mostert rushing touchdown. 0-7.

The Falcons would answer back with a Julio Jones touchdown, his first in 9 games. 7-7.

After the 49ers were forced to punt again, the Falcons took the lead with a Younghoe Koo field goal! 10-7.

And then Julio surpassed Jerry Rice for most receiving yards in the first 9 seasons of an NFL career.

HALFTIME, 10-10.

After a series of punts, the referees decided to step in and ruin the game. Grady Jarrett had a great sack, which was of course flagged for some reason.

After a long drive by the 49ers, they fumbled it!

After a strong defensive stand, the Falcons forced a punt but Kenjon Barner fumbled it on the return. The 49ers would score because.. that’s life as a Falcons fan. 10-19.

The Falcons wouldn’t quit! Qadree Ollison would score from the goal line, narrowing the 49ers lead to 17-19.

Honestly, the last two minutes were nuts. The Falcons moved their way downfield and it appeared like Austin Hooper scored to give the Falcons the victory, but a review said it was incomplete.

They had another try and JULIO SCORED!!!!!! 23-22 FALCONS!!!

With a few seconds remaining, the Falcons would kick the ball and the 49ers would lateral it basically into the endzone for the Falcons to score again. Falcons win 29-22!!!

Well that does it, folks. The Falcons somehow left San Fransisco with a W and improved their record to 5-9.
