◼️ The Atlanta team prevailed 23-20 and increased the crisis of the New York team at the close of week seven.
It was the first time, so far this season, that the Falcons achieved two consecutive victories. The Atlanta team overcame the Giants in a close duel and the New York crisis increased, which remains at the bottom of the National League East Division with a record of six defeats and just one victory.
Matt Ryan was the man in charge of taking over the Falcons by completing 379 passing yards and a TD pass to Marvin Hall. For his part, Tevin Coleman continues to do a great job replacing Devonta Freeman and managed a 30-yard run that gave the initial advantage of 20-6 to the home team.
Matt Ryan is the 1st QB in the Super Bowl era with 350 Pass yards and 0 Int in 4 straight home games.

On the other hand, Eli Manning was not able to do much, and despite achieving a good number of yards (399), he didn’t connect with his runners in the red zone and was close to giving an important win to a franchise that already gives up A LOT of advantages.
With this result, Atlanta breathes a little and is located third in their division behind the Saints and Panthers in what is the fight for the south of the National League.
