The Falcons were trailing late in the second quarter against the Cardinals when an outstanding special teams play shifted momentum in the home Birds’ favor. Richie Grant blocked a Cardinals punt and managed to recover it on the Cardinals’ 5-yard line.

On first down, Cordarrelle Patterson hammered it into the end zone for six.
The Falcons lead 14-10 with under two minutes to play in the half. Not a bad start to 2023 so far.
