The Atlanta Falcons entered Week 4 as one of the league’s three unbeaten teams. A large reason for this has been the stellar play of Matt Ryan — so far, the league’s best QB — and his two WRs, Roddy White and Julio Jones.
2. Today was Roddy White’s show. He made a tremendous catch for his first TD with 33 seconds left in the first quarter, on a 49-yard bomb.
3. Next up, White grabbed an easy TD with 1:55 left in the half, putting Atlanta up 17-14.
4. But he saved his best play for last. The Falcons were pinned on their own 1-yard line with about a minute to go, and White made a fantastic elevating grab to get them near field-goal range.
From there, Atlanta easily advanced the ball to secure a game-winning field goal. White’s performance was the best of the early games, and the Falcons have him to thank for narrowly edging out the talented Panthers.
