Falcons’ free-fall continues as offense shut down in loss

Bettor Loses $330K After Putting His Money On The Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta defense - hardly a strength to begin with - struggled again.

"What I can say the focus right now is how hard we can grind to get our football over this last quarter exactly right", Quinn said, referring to the final four games. "But you can have a more serious injury where, first of all, it may take a bit more time to properly diagnose, because oftentimes people are just told that they have a sprain, and there's a lot of structures around the hip, and it's a deeper joint than the knee or the shoulder". Ryan has been sacked nine times in the last two weeks, including three by the Ravens.

In addition to their ball-control offense, the Ravens hope to neutralize the Chiefs with a defense that is coming off perhaps its best game of the season, holding the Falcons to 131 yards of offense - their lowest total since 1999.

"It's a question that's still yet to be answered", coach John Harbaugh said. "Our guys want a chance to make plays". The only times he threw for fewer yards were in 2009, when he passed for 15 yards against Tampa Bay before being knocked out of the game with a toe injury, and a 106-yard performance in the 2011 regular-season finale, also against the Buccaneers, when the Falcons built a big lead and rested their starters heading into the playoffs. Most notably a fumble that resulted in a 73-yard touchdown from Falcons defensive end Vic Beasley. Beasley punctuated the score by slam dunking the ball over the goalpost, thus incurring an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

Free agent Patrick Corbin agrees to deal with Washington Nationals
Philadelphia might be willing to give Corbin his biggest offer since the team is seemingly ready to outspend everyone this winter. Throughout the 2018 regular season, Corbin put together an 11-7 win-loss record through 200.0 innings pitched in 33 starts.

Jackson ran 17 times for 75 yards and a touchdown during the Ravens' 26-16 win at Atlanta Dec. 2, and he also threw for 125 yards. Griffin went 2 of 4 for 21 yards, guiding the Ravens to a field goal before Jackson returned to the field. Jones had a team-leading 15 tackles, one for loss, to lead the club.

That is certainly going to be the goal when the Ravens visit the Chiefs (10-2), who lead the league in scoring (37.0 points a game) and yards per play on offense (7.03).

"What I'd like to see is strong, relentless effort, both on and off the field", he said. I don't get the sense that he's like, 'I've got to get out there, even if I'm on my death bed.' It doesn't feel like that. Granted, it's not ideal for a quarterback to take that much punishment; Jackson took a kick to the head in the third quarter, and Robert Griffin III came in for a series. But he kept it together and continued to deliver a fairly effective mix of read-option runs and improvised rollout passes until leaving the game for one long possession with a possible concussion. I already know what we are going to do.
