Falcons - Lions recap
The Falcons rolled into Ford Field undefeated and left with its first loss of the season. Nothing went particularly right for Atlanta, with the offense surrendering seven sacks, Desmond Ridder off target, and blown coverage touchdowns.
Atlanta’s defense held admirably through 2.5 quarters, but the wheels fell off near the end of the third. Our Matt Chambers provided his takeaways from an overall forgettable effort in Motor City.
Kaden Elliss with the slam
