The Falcons don’t have wide receiver Calvin Ridley with them in London on Sunday, but it’s not causing them any offensive problems.

Rookie tight end Kyle Pitts capped a 92-yard drive with his first NFL touchdown catch and the Falcons lead the Jets 10-0 in the first quarter of Sunday’s game. The Falcons opened the game with a field goal and the Jets went three-and-out on their first drive.

Pitts caught an 18-yard pass earlier in the drive and now has four catches for 36 yards overall. Matt Ryan is 9-of-13 for 89 yards over the first two possessions of the game.

The Jets have not scored in the first quarter this season and have just over a minute left to change that.
