The Falcons and 49ers continue to play Arena Football.

The Niners took the opening kick of the second half and drove the ball 82 yards in seven plays to cut the Atlanta lead to three.  The drive ended with a five-yard run by Frank Gore.

The Falcons now lead 24-21, with more than 10 minutes left in the third quarter.

After a slow start, 49ers quarterback has completed 11 of 12 passes, spreading the ball around to guys other than Michael Crabtree.

The Falcons now have a chance to push the lead back to 10.
