Cowboys 22 - Falcons 19 final score: Playoff hopes take a massive hit in painful loss

Cowboys 22 - Falcons 19 final score: Playoff hopes take a massive hit in painful loss

It’s mid-November and the season is likely over. In many ways, this Falcons game was a summary of the entire season. Close and hard fought. Critical mistakes at critical points that ultimately turned the tide. Losing in the last second. It was a painful loss that will likely put Atlanta out of the running for the playoffs, barring an unbelievable streak of luck going forward. On to the full recap. First Quarter The Falcons start the game on offense. An early scary pass was quickly forgotten with Matt Ryan finding Julio Jones for a big gain of 28 yards. Tevin Coleman’s receiving was huge...

Falcons 6, Cowboys 3: Second half open thread

It would be nice to see this team score more than three points at a time today. The Falcons haven’t gotten much done against the Cowboys so far, but at least they have been able to hold Dallas to a single field goal at the half. The problem is that they’ve only managed to score two field goals. Everything...

Questionable decisions and poor execution doomed the Falcons yet again

Questionable decisions and poor execution doomed the Falcons yet again

The primary reasons this team lost? Familiar culprits. Our typical recap will hit all the notes, as you’d expect, but after watching this game with spotty Internet and stewing quietly to myself about all the many mistakes Atlanta made, I was moved to write about the specific issues that cost Atlanta in a close game. It’s a mix of questionable-to-weird coaching decisions and errors of execution, all of them familiar. Calvin Ridley continues to have legitimate problems with concentration that result in costly drops. It was an issue that plagued him in college, and while the Alabama...

Falcons may face struggling Packers without Jimmy Graham, Mike Daniels

Falcons may face struggling Packers without Jimmy Graham, Mike Daniels

The Atlanta Falcons have a chance to limp into the playoffs, so we are keeping a close eye on their upcoming opponents. Falcons fans are having one rough season, but the Packers are simply on another level. Despite finally going aggressive in free agency, the team is in full struggle mode with ultraconservative head coach Mike McCarthy flushing away potential wins. Actually this feels a lot like 2014. The Falcons obviously need to take care of business against the Dallas Cowboys, but they have a realistic path to the playoffs. They play the Saints on Thursday night, of course, but they...

Falcons vs. Cowboys: Atlanta will wear throwbacks for the third and final time tomorrow

Falcons vs. Cowboys: Atlanta will wear throwbacks for the third and final time tomorrow

We’re still waiting for the changeover to these uniforms on a full-time basis. The Atlanta Falcons will win or lose in style tomorrow, because they’ll be wearing their throwback logo and 90s black jerseys and helmets on Sunday against the Cowboys. It’s the third and final time they’ll do so in 2018, at which point we’ll be left to pine for them until 2019. The Falcons have been flirting with these uniforms a little more each year, though they also rolled out some (in my humble opinion) pretty slick red ones for Color Rush last year. The team has been playing in their current...

Where the Atlanta Falcons stand heading into Week 11’s matchup with the Dallas Cowboys

Where the Atlanta Falcons stand heading into Week 11’s matchup with the Dallas Cowboys

Atlanta’s still nominally alive in the playoff hunt heading into this one, so we got that going for us. Roster Update Just one move, and it’s a big one for the future but not for this week. The Falcons cut ties with Rees Odhiambo, who spent a little time on the inactives list for Atlanta, and activated Deion Jones from injured reserve. Odhiambo and Austin Pasztor leaving gives the Falcons a clearer picture along the offensive line, where Zane Beadles, Ty Sambrailo and Matt Gono are your current backups. Jones will give this Falcons defense a massive boost whenever he’s able to...

Cowboys vs. Falcons: Previewing the Atlanta defense

Cowboys vs. Falcons: Previewing the Atlanta defense

A defense that’s been hurt a lot this year poses a favorable matchup for Dallas. The Atlanta Falcons are run by head coach Dan Quinn, who was one of the influential people in crafting the Seahawks’ dominant Legion of Boom defense. So when he took over the Falcons, it was expected that the team would develop a strong defensive identity. After being inconsistent on that side of the ball in his first two years, Quinn hired a new defensive coordinator and reportedly became more involved in managing the defense in-game, and the Falcons jumped up to the ninth best unit last year....

Falcons vs. Cowboys: One reason to be confident, one reason to worry

Falcons vs. Cowboys: One reason to be confident, one reason to worry

You have to worry about the Dallas rushing attack, but we’re here with a fresher worry. Look, basically every week you could make a solid case for the Falcons’ offense being something to feel confident about and the defense being a huge cause for concern. You can do that because with maybe 2-3 exceptions, it has been true all year. Against the Dallas Cowboys, things may very well go the same way. But I also feel strangely confident and/or nervous about things I didn’t expect to feel that way about. Here’s what’s on my mind for Dallas tomorrow. Feel confident about: Stopping the...

With Matt Bryant back, what will the Falcons do with Giorgio Tavecchio?

With Matt Bryant back, what will the Falcons do with Giorgio Tavecchio?

Right now, the Falcons will hold on to both, but we don’t know if that will last. The Atlanta Falcons got some great injury news this week. While Deion Jones isn’t going to suit up against the Cowboys, Matt Bryant will. That gives the Falcons back their best kicker since Morten Andersen, and arguably the best one they’ve ever had. Aside from injuring himself powering through a game sealing field goal against the Buccaneers, Bryant has shown no signs of slowing down or losing his leg. Having him back as the Falcons try to cling to their faint playoff hopes is a legitimately big deal....

SportsDay experts' predictions for Cowboys-Falcons: Will Dallas avenge last season's debacle?

SportsDay experts' predictions for Cowboys-Falcons: Will Dallas avenge last season's debacle?

The Cowboys can move to .500 with a win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Here's a look at what our SportsDay Cowboys experts are predicting:Tim CowlishawThere were 20 teams that passed on Randy Moss in the draft, but only one that he really enjoyed making pay. Will Calvin Ridley, skipped by 25 teams, treat the Cowboys with the same disdain? He may try Sunday but I suspect it won't be enough. Dallas can run the ball far better than the Falcons and there's not much to compare between these two defenses. It's all about the Dallas secondary keeping Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu and Ridley from...

Falcons players to start in your fantasy lineup or sit on your bench in Week 11

Falcons players to start in your fantasy lineup or sit on your bench in Week 11

The offense looks to rebound against a good Cowboys defense Well, that was a pretty rough week last week. In a game which the Falcons should have easily won, a few of the players underestimated the Cleveland Browns and the Birds were left to lick their wounds as a result. The offense struggled to get things going all afternoon in Cleveland and the result was a very poor 4/8 for last week’s column in terms of how close the advice was to actual player performance. Let’s do much better this week: Matt Ryan - Start Telling you to start Matt Ryan from Week 2 on this season has become an...

Deion Jones injury: Quinn rules Jones out for Sunday against Cowboys

The reinforcements just aren’t fully healthy yet. The Atlanta Falcons recently activated Deion Jones from injured reserve, giving us some hope he could play on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. Atlanta’s defense hasn’t looked anywhere close to the 2017 version with Jones out, and they could definitely use the help in a must-win game against a beatable Cowboys team. The help isn’t coming, as head coach Dan Quinn has already ruled out the Pro Bowl linebacker. Deion Jones will not play vs. the Cowboys, Matt Bryant will kick against the Cowboys. #Falcons— Kelsey Conway...

Deion Jones will not play against the Cowboys

Falcons Pro Bowl linebacker Deion Jones was declared out for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys by coach Dan Quinn on Friday.
