Falcons vs. Bengals: Cincinnati wins thriller in Atlanta Fourth quarterFollowing Andy Dalton’s first interception of the game Clayton Fejedelem Jersey White , a roughing the passer penalty on Carl Lawson moved the Falcons into Bengals territory. Four plays later, Matt Ryan found Calvin Ridley his second touchdown of the game, and fifth in the last two weeks. The Falcons two-point conversion failed, but nonetheless, the Falcons retake the lead 33-28.After the Falcons added a field goal late, the Bengals got the ball for one final drive, and they drove down the field before Andy Dalton hit A.J. Green for the game-winning score with seconds remaining. The Bengals went on to win 37-36. Who Dey! Third quarterCincinnati started the half with the ball and all Hell broke lose. A serious ankle injury for Tyler Eifert stopped the game for several minutes, and Andy Dalton was sacked on third down. That lead to the first punt of the game, which was blocked by the Falcons. The Falcons offense took over inside the Bengals 10-yard line, but a tackle for loss by Geno Atkins and a near strip-sack from Carlos Dunlap forced the Falcons to kick a short field goal. Matt Bryant’s 28-yard field goal shrunk the Bengals lead to 28-27.After a drive for both teams stalled, the Bengals were approaching scoring range following an unnecessary roughness penalty on the Falcons. The play after the flag, a pass towards Tyler Kroft bounced off Kroft’s hands and into Damontae Kazee’s hands, who returned it to the Falcons’ 46-yard line.Second quarterThe Bengals defensive woes continued on the first drive of the quarter, as the Falcons outside zone running game relentlessly carved up the Bengals front all the way from the 25-yard line to inside the red zone. Similar to Tyler Eifert’s touchdown earlier, Matt Ryan found Logan Paulsen up the seams for a 17-yard touchdown to tie the game at 14-14. It seems whatever Matt Ryan can do, Andy Dalton is not afraid to match it. Another five-play drive ended with a touchdown from Dalton, this time to none other than John Ross.Unfortunately, Ross limped off the field favoring his right leg. He looks to be fine to return.Eventually some defense will step up, but it didn’t happen on the next drive. The Falcons once again marched down against the Bengals for a 10-play drive that ended with Calvin Ridley hauling in an 11-yard touchdown, beating William Jackson on a slant route, and tying the game 21-21.It took just over a minute for the Bengals to, once again Womens Joe Mixon Jersey , respond. Thanks to a defensive pass interference and a late hit penalty on the Falcons defense, the Bengals offense ended up at the one-yard line and punched the ball in with Giovani Bernard once more, putting the Bengals back on top 28-21.With 0:44 remaining, the Falcons managed to get just inside field goal range and Matt Bryant nailed a 55-yard field goal as time expired. The Bengals go back into the locker room with a 28-24 lead and get the ball first in the second half.First quarterFollowing a 53-yard kickoff return, the Falcons marched down the Bengals half of the field for an 8-play drive that ended with a seven-yard rushing touchdown run from Ito Smith to take a quick 7-0 lead. The Bengals didn’t hesitate to respond. Following a 38-yard A.J. Green reception on the drive’s only third down, Andy Dalton’s offense capped off a five-play drive with Tyler Eifert’s first touchdown of the year, tying the game at 7-7.Keeping the aggressive mentality, the Falcons failed to convert on a third and five on the ensuing drive and decided to go for it on fourth-down, where Geno Atkins sacked Matt Ryan and the Bengals got the ball back near midfield. The Bengals offense stepped up and Giovani Bernard converted two third downs and capped off the drive with a 10-yard rushing touchdown to extend the lead to 14-7 just before the end of the period.The Bengals suffered their first loss of the season last week to the Panthers, but they have a chance to get back on the winning track against the (1-2) Falcons.Cincinnati will probably have to rely on their depth to pull one out in Atlanta, though. Joe Mixon, who missed last week’s game, is out as the Bengals will sit him for another week just to be safe. That means Giovani Bernard will be relied on again to carry the load in the backfield for the second straight week.In front of Bernard will still be Trey Hopkins at center as well, as rookie starter Billy Price is still nursing a foot injury. Fortunately, A.J. Green, who was knocked out of last week’s game with a groin injury, looks like he’ll be good to go.The Falcons will also have to rely on some of their reserves as well, and similar to the Bengals, they will once again be without their starting running back. Devonta Freeman will likely miss this game, so Tevin Coleman will get the bulk of the touches like he’s done since Freeman injured his right knee in Week 1. Atlanta also is without their two starting safeties for the season, Ricardo Allen and Keanu Neal, which could result in some big plays from Tyler Eifert and maybe even John Ross.Who do you think will end up with the win?Here is how to watch the Bengals take on the Falcons:Game: Cincinnati Bengals (2-1) at Atlanta Falcons (1-2)Date/Time: Sep. 30th Vincent Rey Jersey White , 2018 at 1:00 p.m. EST Location: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, GAStreaming: Fubo TVSeries Leader: Bengals lead the series 8-5Streak: The Falcons have won three of the past fourCoaches vs. Opponent: Marvin Lewis: (1-2) vs. Dan Quinn (0-0)TV Broadcast: The game will air on CBS-TV.

SB Nation Falcons site: The FalcoholicWeather: Dome [NFL weather]Odds: Falcons, -5.5 [Odds Shark] Sean Payton despises the term “Black Monday.” And he’s one of the coaches who always survives it.Six head coaches were fired as the NFL season concluded, four of them on Monday. Two, Mike McCarthy in Green Bay and Hue Jackson in Cleveland, didn’t even make it that far.Saints coach Payton, finishing his 13th season in New Orleans and now owning the second-longest tenure with a team after Cincinnati fired Marvin Lewis , had some strong words about how the coaching carousel gets derailed every year.“Our owners’ network that they own have created this,” Payton said, referring to NFL Network that is owned by the league, “marketed this and sold this ‘Black Monday,’ and that’s just disappointing.”In reference to Lewis, who was with the Bengals since 2003, but went an all-time worst 0-7 in the playoffs, Payton added: “He’s been a fabulous coach Alex Erickson Jersey White , but I don’t want to comment on anyone or all of them (who were fired).”He added that the whole Black Monday scene, which some media outlets promote the way they do actual competition, is “ridiculous.”Payton and every other coach in pro sports recognize that change is understandable and at times necessary. As long as it is thought out and includes a plan for the future, revision can make sense.When it’s more on an owner’s whim or due to some serious impatience, that’s another story.Steve Wilks , fired after a 3-13 record in his first — and only — season in Arizona, might be a case in point. Had Bruce Arians not retired, he still would have been with the Cardinals, but Wilks was a hot candidate for several openings last offseason following his work as Carolina’s defensive coordinator. Barring a full-out revolt by the players, as happened with Ben McAdoo and the Giants in 2017, how is one year enough to judge a head coach’s capabilities?Also fired on Monday were Vance Joseph in Denver and Adam Gase in Miami. On Sunday night, Todd Bowles with the Jets and Dirk Koetter with the Bucs were let go.A year ago, Indianapolis, Tennessee, Oakland, Detroit, Chicago, Arizona and the New York Giants made changes. That’s 14 franchises out of 32 with different head coaches since 2016. The Cardinals and Giants will have had three coaches from 2016-19.Also taking a hit has been the NFL’s initiative on diversity in coaching. The Rooney Rule is exemplary in purpose, though it sometimes gets criticized for how it is implemented.Of the eight head men released, only Koetter, Gase and McCarthy are not minorities. Just three minority head coaches remain: Ron Rivera with the Panthers, Anthony Lynn with the Chargers Andrew Billings Jersey White , and Mike Tomlin with the Steelers.Impatience by owners can’t be blamed for the moves by the Bengals or Jets, both clearly on a downward spiral.Otherwise, well, it normally takes at the very least three years for a coach’s program to take root. Joseph got two, Gase got three injury-ravaged years, and Koetter also got three.Jackson simply lost too often, particularly with a vastly improved roster early this season, to remain on the job.McCarthy, a Super Bowl winner, had seen things go stale in Green Bay, and he often has been blamed for the Packers getting to just the one Super Bowl with a generational quarterback, Aaron Rodgers.Still, the word stability seems to have been dropped from owners’ dictionaries. They give lip service to wanting to be like the Patriots, Saints or Seahawks.Then, if things turn sour for one season, they begin wondering if the right people are in place. Imagine if John Mara had done that with Tom Coughlin before the 2007 or 2011 seasons, when fans and media were calling for the coach’s removal.Yet, we hear things like this from Broncos boss John Elway:— “Vance made a lot of strides and deserves credit for how hard and competitively the team played this season. There’s always going to be a high standard here. The bottom line is we need to win more football games. We’re excited about the foundation that’s being built and look forward to putting in the work to get the Broncos back on the winning track.”In most places, that winning track has lots of potholes. Not many coaches get the opportunity to navigate around them.
