After their 16-14 victory over San Francisco, it’s time to touch on some statistical superlatives for the Falcons.
Matt Bryant hit the game-winning field goal with two seconds remaining. It’s the second straight week Bryant has hit a game-winning field goal. He’s kicked winners 11 times in his career.
Receiver Roddy White caught seven passes for 104 yards. White now has 18 career 100-yard games. White also went over the 5,000-yard receiving mark for his career. He has 5,055, which puts him fourth on the team’s all-time list.
Quarterback Matt Ryan completed 26 of 43 passes for 273 yards and a touchdown. He also improved his career record in the Georgia Dome to 15-1 and he’s 17-4 overall in games played indoors.
In the preseason, linebacker Curtis Lofton talked about how he wanted to start making more big plays. He did that against the 49ers. He had a sack, nine tackles and the first interception of his career.
Although Erik Coleman is healthy again, the Falcons are sticking with William Moore as a starting safety. That decision is paying off. Moore had his second interception of the season and returned it 13 yards to help set up an Atlanta field goal.
