The Falcons are back in it.

They’ve scored the first 14 points of the third quarter and are now tied with the Seahawks, 17-17.

A Julio Jones touchdown catch capped an impressive drive to open the second half. Mohamed Sanu then caught a 10-yard touchdown pass from Matt Ryan after the Seahawks punted.

The scoring drives have covered 75 and 79 yards, respectively. The Falcons didn’t convert a single third down in the first half but now are moving the ball, and mostly through the air. A little over midway through the third quarter, Jones has six catches for 115 yards.

Ryan is off to an 8-of-12 start in the third quarter and is at 200 yards passing for the game.

Falcons wide receiver Taylor Gabriel (concussion) and cornerback C.J. Goodwin (hamstring) are out for the game.

    Three unanswered touchdowns against the big bad Seahawk defense.
