Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White made a beautiful 43-yard catch to take the Falcons inside the red zone, where they would eventually convert it into a touchdown. Quarterback Matt Ryan hit White deep at the Tennessee 12-yard line. He split two Tennessee defenders to snag the ball.
Check out the video of White’s amazing grab.
That was White’s fourth catch of the game, a game in which the running game had done most of the work, along with tight end Tony Gonzalez. With rookie wide receiver Julio Jones sitting out this week, the Falcons needed a big day from White.
Three plays later, Michael Turner ran it in for a touchdown that put the Falcons on top by a score of 20-3. Atlanta needs a win today to have any hope in the wild card chase after losing to the New Orleans Saints last week in a division game. The Titans are struggling to get their running game going today.
