The Falcons breathed life into a game that was nearly dead by scoring 15 points in the third quarter of their Week 2 matchup with the Buccaneers. Just when it looked as if this team was ready to pull off the upset, things went south in every way imaginable and a three-point deficit turned into a 23-point loss.
Here is how Falcons Twitter reacted to Sunday’s game in Tampa Bay

I won't push this anti-Matt Ryan stuff because truthful this isn't all on him however as he gets older + his contract + game results are gonna force the team to make a decision on him this off-season where an extension is the only option to retain him. W's make things easier.

If you didn’t watch the game and just look at the scoreboard, I wouldn’t expect you to see the progress. Context matters. https://t.co/ZAWBUtL19L

The moment that changed the game for me? The shanked punt that put Tampa Bay on the ATL 43. There was a very sharp decline for Atlanta after that.

You can definitely win games with Matt Ryan but he’s looking a lot more like late-career Drew Brees this season. The arm looks as if it’s declined and he doesn’t have the confidence in it anymore. We’re seeing a lot of short throws but the OL makes it difficult
