Falcons 16 - Bears 10 second half open thread

Atlanta’s winning, but banged up and needing to hold on.

Welcome to the second half of Week 3. The Falcons are up 16-10, but it’s potentially cost them both Russell Gage and Keanu Neal after they came into today with a laundry list of injuries. If they can hold on and win, it’ll be quite an achievement, given those challenges.

We’ll need to see the defense avoid the kinds of big plays—like the Mitch Trubisky scramble—that kept Chicago in the game. They’ll also need to take advantage of their opportunities on offense and have more than a 6 point lead heading into the end of the game, given...well, everything we know about Atlanta.

Go Falcons!
