Falcons make it three in a row by blowing by Redskins

When seeing how both teams received an unexpected gift on Sunday thanks to the Atlanta Falcons knocking off the Washington Redskins on the road in front of their own fans, chances are the Cowboys will be playing with a little extra motivation when facing the Titans.

"It was a bad game, but it was one game", Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan said. Sunday's home game against the Atlanta Falcons was definitely a Hyde performance.

The Falcons didn't punt until midway through the third quarter, converting on their first eight third-down opportunities.

It's been a Jekyll-and-Hyde 2018 season so far for the Washington Redskins.

"Caught us with our trousers down and hit us in the mouth", Washington cornerback Josh Norman said. The Falcons surpassed 100 yards rushing for the first time since Week 2.

"We were about a hangnail away from that happening", Roullier said. Entering third-worst in the National Football League, it held Washington to 35 first-quarter yards and made a crucial stop after Ryan was picked off by Quinton Dunbar - just the quarterback's third interception this season.

"It was very big", said safety Damontae Kazee, who intercepted a pass in the fourth quarter to dash any hopes of a Washington comeback.

"I think halfway through we were a better football team than we were at the start, and we have to keep it trending in that direction", Ryan said after Sunday's game.

Expect him to go full-speed against the Redskins, who are on a three-game winning streak.

Washington finished with 10 penalties for 147 yards, and some players thought the officiating was to blame.

Adrian Peterson was held to 17 yards on nine carries a week after rushing for 149 yards at the New York Giants.

"Got to be better", Swearinger said. Alex Smith was 30 of 46 for 306 yards, an interception and a touchdown pass to Josh Doctson, and third-down back Kapri Bibbs rushed for a score that only served to make the final margin look slightly less lopsided. K Matt Bryant missed his second consecutive game with a right hamstring injury, and CB Robert Alford was out with an ankle injury, the first game he has missed since 2015.
