The Falcons put up 378 yards and led time of possession 35:42 to 24:08. This week, though, the Texans will have to dive right into preparations for Indianapolis, without much time to look back.
Tune in to Sunday’s Atlanta Falcons vs Houston Texans game online or on TV using the information below.
The Falcons have been a surprise team this year and managed to keep their strong start in the preseason rolling after the regular season started.
Houston coach Bill O’Brien didn’t agree with his counterpart’s assessment of his performance. The Texans are now sitting at 1-2 and hope to push to 2-2 after their visit to fellow Hard Knocks survivor.
Houston Texans tight end Garrett Graham (88) is hit by Atlanta…
Your Atlanta Falcons move to 4-0 after obliterating the Houston Texans, 48-21 Sunday afternoon.
Atlanta Falcons linebacker Nate Stupar returns a turnover for a… Sam Bradford has looked like a bad fit at quarterback and has spent most of the season throwing short passes to his running backs that get nowhere. But the big problem is that the Texans have Ryan Mallet and Brian Hoyer at quarterback who at best can be counted on for a spot start here or there but should not be counted on to run your offense every week.
Freeman scored on a 16-yard touchdown up the middle in the first quarter, then followed with a 23-yard touchdown in the second. Don’t have Foster’s first action off of groin surgery be back to back games within four days.
Tuggle played his entire career with the Falcons from 1987 through 2000 and is one of the few Falcons’ players to have his jersey retired.
Make no mistake, this would be a stupid thing for the Texans and O’Brien (and I suppose Foster, if he has a say in it) to choose to do.
The Atlanta Falcons and Carolina Panthers improved to surprise 4-0 win-loss records in the National Football League on Sunday.
Andy Dalton threw a 55-yard touchdown pass in the Bengals’ 36-21 win against the Kansas City Chiefs and Brandon McManus’ field goal saw the Broncos past the Minnesota Vikings 23-20. “We will be ready to go either way”. Hoyer managed to put up decent garbage time numbers (15 of 27 for 226 yards and two touchdowns) when the game was completely out of reach, likely reigniting the quarterback controversy. Hoyer was 17 of 30 for 232 yards with two TD passes and a 103.8 rating. “It starts with me, awful coaching”.
When asked if he knows Foster’s status, O’Brien responded and said that it will be “The night before or 90 minutes before”. Coleman got the starting job, while Freeman remained in a backup role.
The Texans had a nice drive near the end of the half, but missed the FG attempt and went into the half hopeless and down four touchdowns.
The Falcons lead big as running back Devonta Freeman has two touchdowns and 53 yards, while quarterback Matt Ryan has 168 yards and a touchdown. “They don’t come around often, so you have to take advantage of them when you get them”.
Against the Texans, he scored on runs of 16, 23 and 6 yards, and set up another touchdown with a 44-yard reception.
“I’ve always believed in myself”, he said. Freeman rushed for 3 touchdowns on 14 carries for 68 yards. He had 149 total yards on 19 touches.
Mallett’s second pass was deflected and picked off by defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux, the Falcons taking over at their 46.
