A historic day Sunday at the Georgia Dome as the Falcons hold off Carolina 48-33, thanks to 503 yards passing from Matt Ryan and 300 yards receiving from Julio Jones. Both were franchise records and Jones was 36 yards away from an NFL record. Hugh said “It’s a great start to a season that most people didn’t think you had a chance, but you have to stay focused.” The win takes the Falcons to 3 and 1 and they are now two games clear of everyone in the NFC South, it assures that they’ll still be in first place no matter what happens on their Denver-Seattle road trip.
The record will show that the Braves won the final game ever played at Turner Field 1-0 over the Tigers Sunday. Julio Tehran gave up three hits over seven innings to get the win. The Braves ended the season winning 12 of their last 14 games.
