In five-point hole, Atlanta got the ball back on their 20-yard line with barely over a minute left to play. Matt Ryan fired a shot at Roddy White, but Corey Webster pushed ball out of his hands for an incomplete pass. On second-and-ten, Tony Gonzalez caught his first pass of the game, a ten-yard gain.
On the next set of downs, Ryan hit Roddy White on the right side for a three-yard gain. Then the quarterback, chased out of the pocket again, scrambled for another three yards, ending it with an awkward slide. Gonzalez converted again with a nine-yard catch.
Four seconds left on the clock, Atlanta had one more play, one last shot in the half to get some points. Ryan threw it up, way up, to mass of bodies gathered outside the end zone. It was intended for Eric Weems, but a blue shirt batted it down.
Atlanta's offense headed to the locker room with a total of 127 yards and seven first downs, but no points other than tw from a safety.
