Rarely do you see fans upset after a big win, especially one over a hated division rival on the road. The Falcons didn’t just defeat the Saints on Sunday, they also moved into the final NFC playoff seed. Considering the team hasn’t qualified for the postseason since 2017, why exactly were fans frustrated?
Well, Atlanta’s 24-6 fourth-quarter lead didn’t just shrink, New Orleans actually took a 25-24 lead with a minute left after the Falcons failed to put the game away. Ultimately, Matt Ryan and Cordarrelle Patterson got the job done with a clutch drive to set up a game-winning Younghoe Koo field goal.
Here’s our Week 9 snap counts and notes from the Falcons’ 27-25 win over the Saints.
