BREAKING: Fat guy touchdown in Atlanta vs. New Orleans

Kevin C. Cox

And this one is of the receiving variety.

It's been a year of happiness for the Atlanta Falcons. The team is 8-0, Matt Ryan is playing extremely well and spreading the love to talented receivers such as Julio Jones and Roddy White, and they're flying under the radar (bird pun bird pun bird pun) just enough to keep the annoying national media off their back. Everything's coming up Team Red.

And now they're throwing to their fat guys, too. Oh, my stars.

That's offensive lineman Mike Johnson making a nice grab and scoring, which is a rarity for the huskier gentlemen out there. If Atlanta is going to keep winning football games AND keep throwing to its fat guys, the Falcons might just win the hearts of our nation in a landslide.
