Game Notes Week 6 at Seattle seahawks

Falcons Lose Tough One Late 26-24

The Falcons throw a late game interception and give up a fourth quarter lead, losing their second game of the season on the road in Seattle.

The Falcons offense recorded 362 total yards, marking the most yards the Seahawks defense has given up this season. The offense scored three passing touchdowns on three consecutive drives. Before this game, Seattle’s defense had only allowed one passing touchdown all season.

QB Matt Ryan went 27-of-42 for 335 yards and three touchdowns. This was the 27th time Ryan has thrown for three or more touchdowns, and the 39th time in his career throwing for 300 yards. Ryan is the first 300 yard passer the Seahawks have allowed all season, and his 220 passing yards in the third quarter is the most passing yards allowed by a quarterback facing Seattle since week five of 2011 (Eli Manning 236 – fourth quarter). He also tied former QB Dan Fouts for an NFL record 45 straight games of 200+ passing yards.

Julio Jones finished the game with seven receptions for 139 yards and one touchdown. This was the 31st 100-yard receiving game of his career and the third time he’s reached that mark this season. His 139 receiving yards is the most the Seahawks defense has given up all season, and the second most yards they’ve allowed by a receiver since 2015 (Markus Wheaton 201 yards – Week 12 of 2015).

Levine Toilolo scored his first touchdown of the season – fifth of his career – to put the Falcons ahead 24-17. His 46-yard reception capped off a 97-yard drive and the 17th touchdown drive of the season of 60-or-more yards for the Falcons.

WR Mohamed Sanu caught his second touchdown pass of the year in the third quarter. He finished the game with five receptions for 47 yards.

The Falcons defense held the Seahawks to 2.7 yards per carry. The defense hasn’t allowed a 100 yard rusher in 11 straight weeks. The defense also held Seattle to 36% conversion rate on third downs.

CB Desmond Trufant recorded his second sack of the season in the first quarter. He also forced his first fumble of the season on that sack.

K Matt Bryant finished the game three-of-three on field goals. He is now 11-for-11 on the year, and he is one of six kickers to not miss a field goal this season.
