The Falcons travel to Detroit today as they prepare for Sunday’s match-up against the Lions. The team signed DT Joe Vellano to the active roster to boost some defensive line depth. However, Hugh said this will be a biggest test for the Lions this season, facing both the Falcons offense and defense.
Meanwhile, the Braves and pitcher R.A. Dickey got a 3-2 win Thursday night. After the game, Dickey was asked about retirement. Hugh still believes he has one more year left in him, and he was just taking a moment to reflect on the season.
Thursday Night Football turned out better than expected between the Rams and 49ers. Jared Goff has looked more comfortable in the offense this season than his lackluster rookie year. Todd Gurley had himself a game running for 113-yds and three TDs.
