Falcons Stomp Lions 27-7

The Atlanta Falcons are on their way to Charlotte to play the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium. After our win over the Lions and with a 7-4 record the future is looking up. Our schedule only gets more difficult from here and we are going to face Tampa Bay again before the end. But if we can win over the Panthers we have a good chance of pulling off the conference and going to the playoffs. I don’t think it is too early to talk about that, especially with some of the superior performances we have had. Warrick Dunn got over 100 yards rushing and has now gone over 1,000 yards this season. Michael Vick racked up over 200 yards on offense in this Thanksgiving stomping of the Lions.

Turnovers Do It Again

The Falcons are going to play their first ever Thanksgiving game and first game against the Detroit Lions this season on Thursday. The game at Ford Field will be the Atlanta Falcons chance to get even with the Lions for last years defeat. Last weeks loss to Tampa Bay is still fresh in our minds, but with a 6-4 record we need to be worrying about the next few games not a 3 point loss in which we played pretty well. Michael Vick threw for 306 yards, a season high, and we converted very well on downs. Our defense and offense were well executed and proved that we could have a better record if we would stop all the devastating turnovers that turn into rival points.
