Falcons Week 2 Recap
"Chicago is a hard place to win in. You have the weather to deal with, you have the wild fanbase, it'll be a fun game.", GM Nissen says before the game today.

The Atlanta Falcons came out a little slow and lackadaisical with the ball in the first quarter. QB Bo Callahan threw an INT in the redzone and the FB Dennis Palumbo fumbled as well.

The 2nd quarter was where the Falcons took the lead and had a very strong quarter scoring 17 of the teams 20 points in that quarter. Both teams had trouble converting on third down, Bears going 5-16 and the Falcons going 5-14. It was definitely a defensive game win here for the Falcons. They stood tall and kept the lead the offense built up earlier.

LE Robert Quinn had 6 tackles, two of those being sacks. He also had a forced fumble in today's game. CB Kendall Fuller led the team with 7 tackles. He also scooped up a fumble to give the offense the ball.

QB Bo Callahan finished the day 14-31 for 209 yards. throwing two TD's and 1 INT. WR Ryan Broyles was, yet again, in the right spot, making his only grab of the day a 47 yard TD. WR Rock Pritchett caught the other one from Callahan. HB Joe Mixon had another solid game today as well, carrying the ball 24 times for 92 yards. Mixon had a 22-yard run in the final 5 minutes of the game to help keep the final drive for the Falcons going, which ending up leading to a FG by K Gadhi Mendel to go up by a TD in the final minutes of the game. The defense yet again stopped their offense, resulting in a T.O.D., leading to a Falcons victory.

After the game, GM Nissen spoke at the podium.

"I thought we played a good game. There is some room for more improvement on both sides of the ball, but the boys squeezed the W out today. Now its time to go back home and prepare for a tough divisional game next week against Carolina."
