Falcons scored a go-ahead TD thanks to an absurd ricocheted pass

Whatever works!

Holy smokes! With the score tied at 21 apiece, the Falcons had a few minutes to get the lead against the Raiders. That’s when Matt Ryan delivered a pass to Tevin Coleman near the end zone — only it didn’t really finish there.

The ball ricocheted off Coleman’s hands and to teammate Justin Hardy’s for the touchdown. It’s definitely not how the Falcons drew it up, but they’re glad it turned out that way. Falcons touchdown!
