The Atlanta Falcons played the Dallas Cowboys, who were without star RB Ezikiel Elliot. The Falcons came out sluggish with Matt Ryan throwing an interception that hit Mohammad Sanu in the hands. The Cowboys would take advantage of that with Dak Prescott roll out to the right. The Falcons would kick a field goal to end the quarter and make it 7-3. Atlanta would drive the whole field and would score a touchdown from a Tevin Coleman 1 yard run. This would be one of three touchdown drives. The Falcons were unstoppable on offense as they could drive down the field whenever they waned to. Dallas was shut down as Adrian Clayborn absolutely obliterated Dallas LT's Chaz Green and Byron Bell. Clayborn finished the day with six (!!!) sacks. He broke an Atlanta team record. Atlanta would hit another field goal to make the final score 27-7.
Atlanta looked like Atlanta finally as this can be a good foundation for a streak. Atlanta is third in the division at 5-4 and they play Seattle on Monday Night Football.
