Last Sunday, the Falcons turned conservative after building a 17-0 halftime lead on the Miami Dolphins, who rallied for a stunning 20-17 victory . Ryan drove the Falcons into position for a tying field goal, only to throw an interception with less than a minute to go .
Now, it’s time for that Super Bowl rematch.
While Ryan and the Falcons have done their best to get escape the shadow of a historic meltdown, there’s no getting away from it this week.
He’s as tough as I’ve been around and made some throws that were, obviously that one to Taywan was a big throw, Mularkey said. It was a real big throw. I mean he did. He played well.
Mariota was 23 for 32 for a season-high 306 yards. He completed each of his three passes on the drive that ended with Taylor’s tiebreaking score.
The Titans (3-3) stopped a two-game slide and moved into a tie for the AFC South lead with Jacksonville and Houston.
Jacoby Brissett tried to rally the Colts (2-4) to a second straight overtime. But Titans linebacker Wesley Woodyard forced Brissett out of bounds shy of the first-down marker on fourth-and-inches with 2:19 left before going toward midfield to celebrate.
Coach Chuck Pagano lost his challenge of the spot and said he wouldn’t blame officials.
Disappointing to say the least, Pagano said. Got to play 60 minutes. It’s a recurring thing I know that.
As usual when playing Newton, the Eagles have to find a way to hit him and confuse him with coverages. I’d expect the Eagles to bring more pressure than usual, knowing the Panthers have an excellent offensive line and four or five rushers won’t cut it. Also, the Panthers receivers are burners, so you can ask a corner to cover them maybe longer than you want.
