Since this is the second-ever regular season game in Atlanta's new stadium, communication is going to be tough for the Bills, but that doesn't mean LeSean McCoy can't quiet the crowd with a few long, back-breaking touchdowns. The pick led to Hauschka's third field goal. Ryan and the Falcons moved into the red zone with under a minute to go, but Ryan's throw to Taylor Gabriel of fourth down was incomplete. Atlanta became the last NFC team to lose this season. If Jones and Sanu are sidelined for any extended period of time, the formula of using the running-back combo of Freeman and Tevin Coleman has to be in play once again.
Jerry Hughes hit Ryan's arm as the quarterback was about to pass and the ball squirted forward, beyond the line of scrimmage.
He'll remain an RB3/FLEX when Atlanta comes out of their Week 5 bye.
"More important than anything for us, let's get our turnover margin in order", said coach Dan Quinn.
INJURY UPDATE: Atlanta starters who could miss the game with injuries include: safety Ricardo Allen (concussion), linebacker Vic Beasley (hamstring), right tackle Ryan Schraeder (concussion) and defensive end Courtney Upshaw (ankle, knee).
"We know we're good enough to score even if we're missing a couple guys", Matthews said.
The Falcons failed to take advantage of Andre Roberts' 61-yard kickoff return following the field goal. Ryan's target ended up being Nick Williams, and the ball off Williams hand ended up being picked off by Micah Hyde.
