Three Wins, 27 Points And One Awesome Team: A Falcons-Chargers Recap – The Falcoholic

Folks, youre looking at an excellent football team.For once Im not going to couch that statement. The Falcons made a few mistakes—a costly penalty here, Matt Ryans first interception of the season there—and theyre not a perfect football team. Given that no team in the NFL today approaches perfect, I dont think I care.From the first snap of the game, the Falcons dominated. They led the entire game, never really allowed the Chargers to climb back into it and made a number of eye-popping plays. They sacked Rivers, picked Rivers, shut down Rivers receivers, held Ryan Mathews in check and ran roughshod over the Chargers on the ground and through the air. The final score isnt even close to telling the story, because it felt more like the Falcons were winning 50-0 after the half.
