Falcons erase deficit, tie game at half


The Atlanta Falcons spotted the Cardinals a 13-point lead, and the Falcons erased it.

The comeback was fueled by a sack from Falcons defensive end John Abraham on rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley.  The loose ball was returned for a touchdown, and the play was upheld via replay review.

The Cardinals got another field goal late in the first half to go back in front, and the Falcons drove down to tie it up, again.

Like John Skelton, Lindley has completed two of seven passes.  But Lindley has accounted from triple the yardage; 18 versus six.

Falcons receiver Roddy White has 98 receiving yards.  For the Cardinals, LaRod Stephens-Howling has 113 yards rushing on only 10 carries.
