This is the 7th straight game that the Falcons have received the ball to start the game.— Evan Birchfield (@EvanBirchfield) December 22, 2019
On the Falcons first drive, Devonta Freeman would record a rushing touchdown. This is the first time the Falcons have scored a touchdown on their first drive since Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals. 7-0.
Easy drive. Freeman takes the toss all the way to the house— The Falcoholic (@TheFalcoholic) December 22, 2019
The Falcons kicked off to the Jacksonville, and they fumbled it! Falcons ball in scoring range.
The falcons need to keep Keith Smith & Kenyon Barner. Love them— mattp0p (@p0pp_) December 22, 2019
I think Keith Smith has earned his spot— DB. EL (@KreativWhim) December 22, 2019
And just like that, Devonta Freeman records his second touchdown of the day, this time via a pass from Matt Ryan. 14-0.

Always a good time for a first. Devonta Freeman has 2 first quarter scores for the first time in his career.— Matthew Berry (@MatthewBerryTMR) December 22, 2019
The Jaguars would punt and Younghoe Koo would miss a 42-yard field goal.

Matt Ryan continues to make history.
More punts by the Jaguars, and the Falcons would enter halftime with a 17-3 lead.
The Jaguars would punt, and instead of having Younghoe Koo kick a 54-yard field goal, they decided to also punt. A lot of punting going on.
The Jaguars would punt it back, and Matt Ryan would throw his second interception of the day.

Julio Jones made some history of his own.
Julio Jones has reached 1,200 receiving yards for the sixth consecutive year.— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) December 22, 2019
That ties him with Antonio Brown, Torry Holt and Randy Moss for the second-longest streak in NFL history.

Qadree Ollison would step in and finish off a Falcons drive with his 4th career touchdown, extending the Falcons lead to 24-6.
Chris Lindstrom is very good. I think he's a key piece in the offensive turnaround.— FalconsAreUnstoppableoholic Matt (@FalcoholicMatt) December 22, 2019
Qadree Ollison is a Touchdown Machine (TM)— The Falcoholic (@TheFalcoholic) December 22, 2019

This is ridiculous, and since I’m tweeting about the 2019 Atlanta Falcons, let me clarify that it is ridiculous in a good way.— Jeañña (@jeannathomas) December 22, 2019
Blidi Wreh-Wilson gave up a touchdown pass, which then narrowed the lead to 24-12 after a missed 2-point conversion.
That was a weird play by Blidi Wreh-Wilson. He had great position, was on top of the receiver and then seemed to just kind of give up. Maybe he thought the ball was well overthrown?— William McFadden (@willmcfadden) December 22, 2019
The Jaguars would move downfield but ultimately fail thanks to a Jack Crawford sack and failed fourth down attempt.
Belated credit to Cominsky and Crawford on the third down sack— The Falcoholic (@TheFalcoholic) December 22, 2019
And with that, the Atlanta Falcons win 24-12.
Game. Over.— Aaron Freeman (@falcfans) December 22, 2019
Kneeling it out and that's that. Falcons just keep winning, and we'll soon find out how much that means to Arthur Blank— The Falcoholic (@TheFalcoholic) December 22, 2019
Well that does it, folks. The Falcons are now 5-2 since the Week 9 Bye, and 6-9 overall in 2019. Next week will be the final game of the season, and will be played at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
