The Falcons lost to the Saints Monday night and also lost rookie safety Shann Schillinger for the season, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
As injuries go, this shouldn’t be devastating. Schillinger was a sixth-round pick that helped on special teams.
Still, the Falcons aren’t used to losing any players. The Falcons haven’t made a single transaction since September 21.
That is a truly incredible streak, and helps provide one clue why the team has played so well this year.
