Falcons Week 3 Recap
The Falcons returned home after winning in Chicago and went straight to work for their big divisional game against the Panthers. Both teams heading into the week were 2-0.

The game had a nice pace for their offense throughout the game, but more so was the defense once again up to help get another W. MLB Raekwon McMillan led the team with 9 tackles, one for a loss, he also picked off the Panthers once. Doing so as well was, CB Kendall Fuller and SS Andre Burgess. DE Robert Quinn came up with the only sack recorded for the defense. They shut down the Panthers in the redzone allowing them only two FGs on four attempts down there for them. The only TD that was given up was a kick return for 101 yards in the 3rd quarter.

The offense was shut down pretty much all day. RB Joe Mixon finished the day with 42 yards on 21 attempts, although, he did have one rushing touchdown. QB Bo Callahan, as well, had a solid game finishing the day 18-28 for 176 yards and two touchdowns. Those two touchdowns were caught by WR Billy Crockett.

GM Nissen was asked about the win and how the team has turned around from last year.

"The win was a big, divisional win for us, early in the season. One of us was gonna be sitting a top the South at the end of the day. We wanted to be that team. One part of our offense wasn't working today, the defense made the stands they had too, causing turnovers and the offensive players stepped up to get points on the board. It was a great win today. As far as the turnaround for the team, these guys were all very talented when I showed up, they just needed to be pushed in the right direction. I think we are finding our groove and want to continue this little win streak we are on."
