Falcons jump on top of Ravens

It was billed as a battle of two great running games.  But the Falcons passing game has stolen the show as Atlanta raced out to a 10-0 halftime lead over the Baltimore Ravens Thursday night.

Perhaps raced isn’t the right word.  The Falcons have methodically chewed up the clock by converting 8-of-12 third downs, most on Matt Ryan passes.   Ryan threw for 160 yards in the first half on an incredible 28 attempts.  Michael Turner has only 19 yards on 10 rushing attempts, but is sure to get the ball plenty in the second half.

The Falcons didn’t hit many big plays, but the Ravens barely had any plays at all.  They only moved the ball 76 yards in less than nine minutes of time of possession.  The Ravens offense needs to make a play soon or the defense could run out of gas.   Much like the Colts, the Falcons are great playing with the lead in their own stadium.

    I swear the announcers would better if Buffalo and Carolina were playing. How can a prime time game have such bad announcing!?

    The AFC is wide open. No very good teams. Lots of ok teams.

    Second game in a row that I heard “Halati Ngota”. At least this announcer corrected himself, though.

    worst announcers ever … I give credit to PFT and their recent article about selling the Thursday Night game rights to a network … the league and owners make more money, which hopefully some of which gets to the players, and we as football fans will not have to listen to 1. some guy i have never heard of. 2. a failure of an ex-Head coach. 3. a failure of an ex-General Manager (probably the worst of this football generation)
