ATLANTA -- Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons were bad, but victorious once again. Ryan overcame a career-worst five interceptions to lead another fourth-quarter comeback in the Falcons' 23-19 victory over the reeling Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at the Georgia Dome. Ryan threw for 301 yards on 28-of-46 passing but three five interceptions. Jonathan Babineaux had a momentum-shifting fumble return for a touchdown, Roddy White had another big game and Michael Turner scored the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter for the Falcons, who improved to 9-1. White had eight catches for 123 yards. Atlanta owns the best record in the NFC, but still has plenty to prove after another uneven performance against a team perceived to be inferior. Arizona would certainly trade positions, though. The Cardinals (4-6) dropped their sixth straight game, after starting the season 4-0, and have major issues at quarterback. The Falcons, who lost for the first time last week at the New Orl...

Ryan regroups as Falcons rally past Cards, 23-19

The comparison of starting quarterbacks just didn't seem fair. Arizona's John Skelton was benched after only five incompletions. Atlanta's Matt Ryan kept throwing after five interceptions.

Arizona Cardinals defense teams up for incredible sideline fumble recovery

Sure the Falcons beat the Cardinals 23-19 despite Matt Ryan’s terrible day (5 INTs, zero touchdowns), but that’s only because Arizona’s quarterback situation may be the worst in the league. It surely isn’t their defense, especially when you see them making incredible plays like this one. Falcons RB Jason Snelling, after a short pass from Ryan, turns upfield but has the ball...

Coaches struggle with challenge flag

I subscribe to the theory that it's better to be lucky than good. But what if you're both? Say hello to the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons not only survived an uncharacteristic five-interception performance by quarterback Matt Ryan, but also a couple decisions by head coach Mike Smith in replay as Atlanta rallied to defeat Arizona 23-19 Sunday. As replay has become more...

Tom Brady Impresses Against Colts, Matt Ryan Drops Off in NFL MVP Power Rankings

Thanksgiving is just a few days away, which is awesome, especially if you  like copious amounts of family, food, booze and football, and not necessarily in that order. The Turkey Day week is huge in those aspects, and it’s also huge in the NFL. Tom Brady and the Patriots, the best team in the second half of just about every season for the last decade or so, know that better than...

Falcons Commit Six Turnovers, Still Pull Out Win

The Falcons and the Cardinals played a tight game today, but one stat should have given the Cardinals the clear and decisive victory.  That stat is six forced turnovers.Falcons' fans knew the game was going to be a tough one when the Cardinals were able to intercept Matt Ryan's first pass on the first play of the game.  The Cardinals were able to turn that interception...

Falcons Beat Cardinals 23-19 in Another Circus-Ugly Win

  The Falcons seemed ready to pack in the season this afternoon.  Playing at home against an Arizona Cardinals team on a five game losing streak seemed like a guaranteed win.  Matt Ryan threw a career high five interceptions (three off tips), with the Falcons turning the ball over a ridiculous six times.     Oh, and we have no run game.   The offensive...

Arizona QB situation in disarray after loss

The quarterback situation for the Arizona Cardinals is in disarray again following the benching of John Skelton early in the team's 23-19 loss at Atlanta. Rookie Ryan Lindley replaced Skelton and had a difficult day as Arizona managed to lose despite six turnovers by the Falcons, five of them on Matt Ryan interceptions. Asked if he would stick with Lindley, coach Ken Whisenhunt...

Ryan, Foster fall short in Week 11

Studs QB: Matt Schaub, Texans It's common for owners to direct their displeasure at a player for a disappointing display, but Schaub might be the first performer to throw for over 500 yards and still be the target of vexation. This petulance derives from the fact that Schaub, who racked up five end-zone excursions on the afternoon, was started in only 32 percent of FOXSports...

Sunday Wrap Up

Bills def. Dolphins: This loss almost guarantees a losing season for the Dolphins, who have a daunting schedule ahead of them. Reggie Bush and the running game has dried up, which has left the inexperienced Ryan Tannehil completely vulnerable with no weapons to work with. A once playoff hopeful will probably end up with 5 or 6 wins on the season. The Bills, on the other hand...
