NFL Draft Zone:
Davis, 6-1, 205 pounds was signed by the Falcons as a college free agent on July 26, 2011. He spent the 2011 season as a member of the Falcons practice squad. He caught 42 passes for 470 yards with three touchdowns in 2010 and helped lead Oregon to the BCS national championship game.
Falcons WR Drew Davis caught two passes for 30 yards and a touchdown in Sunday’s Week 8 win over Philadelphia. He secured both balls on Atlanta’s opening possession, filling in for injured Harry Douglas at slot receiver. “He’s a guy who has kept at it and at it,” Matt Ryan said of Davis, a UDFA out of Oregon. “He has been really focused on getting better, even when there wasn’t an immediate payoff. That’s hard in this business, but he was ready and we had a great design for him on that first drive.”

The Atlanta Falcons (7-0) are for real this season, rattling off seven straight wins to remain the only undefeated team left in the NFL going into November. The New England Patriots flirted with the chance to cap a perfect season with a Super Bowl win a few years ago and saw their hopes dashed in just seconds by Eli Manning's New York Giants offense. To avoid...
Who are the 2012 Atlanta Falcons? After watching seven games, the best I can come up with is: "awesomely undefeated."
Drew Davis upsetting fantasy football teams everywhere.
I have seen stifling and opportunistic defenses only a week before seeing the same players struggle to stop a nosebleed. Or even an offense that has averaged over 28 points a game but...
The former Eagles CB claims his old coach ignored him following Sunday's game, but it was Samuel who got in the final jab during his postgame press conference.
The Falcons loomed as the only unbeaten team remaining in the NFL, but they entered Sunday's game at Philadelphia as an underdog.
Perception lurked greater than reality: The Eagles as NFC heavyweight, having gained a berth to the conference championship game five times in head coach Andy Reid's first 13 seasons; the Falcons as pretender, having gone 0-3 in the playoffs in...
Matt Ryan threw touchdown passes on Atlanta's first three possessions against Philadelphia and new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, and the Falcons remained the NFL's only unbeaten team with a 30-17 victory over the Eagles on Sunday.
The Falcons improved to 7-0 for the first time in franchise history while the Eagles (3-4) lost after a bye for the first time in 14 games...
Asante Samuel Glowing Post Game
Bitter sweet to say the least, Asante Samuel was driven out of town at the start of the season and was all smiles post-game after huge win in Philly. The Falcons gave up only a seventh-round draft pick to acquire the once dominant Eagles corner. In the video above, Samuel’s throws gas on the soon-to-be Andy Reid firing, does he go to far?
Matt Ryan’s homecoming could not have gone much better. A product of Philadelphia’s William Penn Charter School, “Matty Ice” led the Atlanta...
Everyone must stand alone.
For anyone who watched the Philadelphia Eagles’ third straight loss on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons, it was clear that the game was lost overwhelmingly because of the pitiful showing by the team’s defense.
However, on Monday, the headlines surrounding the game were dominated by talk of benching quarterback Mike Vick.
The Eagles’ offense was...
PHILADELPHIA - The Atlanta Falcons had to work too hard and too long for some of their earlier victories, and they didn't want the same thing to happen again. So they scored early and often and rolled to a 30-17 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at rainy, windy Lincoln Financial Field to remain the NFL's only undefeated team. The Eagles had changed defensive...
You've got to give Moonbeam credit (begrudgingly)... He's said all along the 2012 Eagles were deficient on both the defensive and the offensive lines, and at the safety positions... and last Sunday, he was proven correct.
The Eagles (3-4) were beaten and worn down off the snap on both sides of the ball, albeit by a very good Falcons team that is for real at 7-0.....
