I don’t know but if Matt Stafford ever needs some advice in keeping composure with a bunch of defenders about to sack you, he may want to talk to this lady. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone put a bug in Terry Pegula’s ear about that this week as the Bills head to Atlanta’s brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which carried an estimated price tag of $1.6 billion … or $200 million more than Pegula paid for the entire Bills franchise.
“The emotions of going from the dagger to the heart to, “OK, that’s a good win” those emotions would feel different (with a loss), but we’ll go right back to the process and treat it the same”, Quinn said Monday. Too many field goals for us, not enough touchdowns and ultimately, not a touchdown at the end.
Safety Glover Quin has humbly bragged he’s faced the NFL’s best quarterbacks and wide receivers after almost splitting his eight-plus year career evenly in both conferences.
The Falcons tacked on a 36-yard field goal by Matt Bryant for a 10-0 bulge with 12:51 remaining in the first half.
Detroit tied it before the end of the quarter. The latter was set up by Slay’s interception.
And for the second time, the Falcons have made a game-saving play on the final play.
Quarterback Matthew Stafford was efficient against the Giants, but what may help him reach the next level is if the Lions can sustain the solid run game they displayed against the Giants. At first, many fans thought this meant the Lions would get one more shot at punching the ball in with a win.
Detroit was marching for what would have been a last-second, game-winning touchdown. controversial penalties first pushed the Lions back almost all the way to midfield, then brought them back down to the doorstep of victory.
Stafford opened the drive hitting Tate for 15 yards, then on the very next play he found TJ Jones passing over the middle for 29 yards. Desmond Trufant maybe had the two biggest penalties of the day.
“Win some, you lose some”.
The Falcons have more players on the roster named Matt than any other team in the league. You see it so often game-to-game, the poise the roster shows in the numerous pressure situations they’ve navigated the past two years. That’s the NFL. It happens. Obviously, you turn the ball over there, it’s tough.
Atlanta led 20-13 at halftime. “We practice it all the time”. We’re stuffing this run up and then we get to rush the passer.
On the run: Jeff Saturday, who played center for the Indianapolis Colts for 13 of his 14 National Football League seasons and had Lions head coach Jim Caldwell as an assistant coach or head coach for 10 of them, likes how the Lions are being persistent with the run game. The Lions were missing MLB Jarrad Davis (concussion), C Travis Swanson (ankle), S Tavon Wilson (shoulder) and RB Dwayne Washington (quad).
