Found November 29, 2011 on Blogging Dirty:
On Sunday, the Falcons played an undermanned Minnesota Vikings team, and performed admirably against them. It was a win, and a solid one at that, but the final score barely begins to tell the story of this game.The Falcons have a bad tendancy to getting off to a hot start, the offense fizzles, and inferior teams are let back into the game when they have no business being there. The same thing happened in our Week 11 matchup with Tennessee. After getting out to a big lead in the first half, penalties, mistakes, and poor execution brought up third down and long situations.
