The home fans didn’t seem happy most of the day as their team failed to show up.
Washington, which began the day looking to build on a 5-2 record, was never in the game against the Falcons. Atlanta won its third consecutive game, moving to 4-4.
The Falcons had their way, gaining 491 yards against one of the league’s best defenses in an easy 38-14 victory. Everything went right for Atlanta, including Julio Jones getting his first touchdown of the season.
Atlanta scored five touchdowns, kicked a field goal, threw an interception and punted twice on nine possessions.
Matt Ryan went 26-of-38 for 350 yards, four touchdowns and an interception. Jones caught seven passes for 121 yards and a touchdown, which came on his 60th reception of the year and ended a 12-game regular-season drought without one. Calvin Ridley made six catches for 71 yards and a touchdown before leaving to be checked for a head injury.
