The Falcons finished off their win over the Cardinals without one of their starters at defensive tackle.
Atlanta defensive tackle Peria Jerry left the team's 23-19 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday with a thigh injury and did not return. His injury came late in the fourth quarter as the Falcons were trying to stave off a late comeback attempt from the Cardinals.
Jerry finished the game with two tackles, both of them solo. He is a starter for the Falcons, and has eight total tackles on the year. Jerry is in his third year out of Ole Miss and has 28 tackles and two sacks for his career.
The Falcons were able to overcome injuries and five interceptions by quarterback Matt Ryan for the victory. The Cardinals led, 19-16, in the fourth quarter before Atlanta was able to drive down for the game-winning score from Michael Turner with 6:42 left.
The win moves the Falcons to 9-1. The Cardinals have low lost six straight, and are 4-6 on the year.
