NFC South Week 7 decisive moment
By Pat Yasinskas

If it seems like Atlanta wide receiver Roddy White has been involved in every decisive moment the Falcons have had this season, that's probably because he has.
The latest came late in the third quarter against Cincinnati. White and the Falcons hit what could have been the low point of their season. White had a ball stripped from him and the Bengals took it in for a touchdown to take a 25-24 lead after they had trailed 24-3 at halftime.
But White and the Falcons didn’t pout. As the fourth quarter began, they marched downfield and White redeemed himself by catching a touchdown pass from Matt Ryan. The Falcons promptly followed that with a two-point conversion pass to White that put Atlanta on top to stay and in sole possession of first place in the NFC South.
That capped a day in which White finished with 11 catches for 201 yards and two touchdowns.
