On what was a special day for the franchise, the Falcons managed to deliver one of their best performances of the season. Facing a dysfunctional Carolina team gave them an excellent opportunity to end their three-game home stand on a high note. With Roddy White being honored for his exceptional career, they didn’t let one of the true all-time greats down.
Getting Julio Jones and Austin Hooper back from injury was a major boost for the offense. What the team ultimately needed was significant improvement within the trenches. They received that on both sides of the ball.
