"The ability to get back out there and have fun and celebrate and have passion no matter the play, it feels good", Hicks said. "There's certain ones that you could do from the 5 [yard line] to the 10". When you're down closer, obviously you can't throw over a defender anymore. Outside toward the pylon is good.
"So, we were pleased with where [the plays were created to go]. We were on the correct hash mark and it was the right time of the game". Our execution will be better.
If Atlanta could have at least proven it has moved on from its red-zone and other offensive issues that plagued it so often last season, there could be plenty to build on heading into the next game against Carolina.
Drinks with Downer set Papadopoulos towards jail
"I made a awful mistake", Papadopoulos , 31, said in a statement to Judge Randolph Moss in the Washington , D.C., courtroom. The only other defendant in the Russian Federation probe who has been sentenced is Dutch attorney Alexander Van der Zwaan.
"It's never discouraging", Jones said/ "We just got to keep working, stick together and make plays and get things called down there".
Atlanta's defense kept it in the game, and the Falcons had an opportunity down in the red zone to earn a victory in the game's final seconds.
The pass from wide receiver Nelson Agholor came on a third-and-5 from the Falcons' 41-yard line and resulted in a 15-yard gain. The Falcons got the matchup they wanted after Ryan motioned Freeman out of the backfield, but the throw was off the mark. They were doing it all night (Jones was targeted 19 times and had 10 catches for 169 yards). Quinn previously expressed no regret about holding Jones and Freeman out of the preseason.
Foles said they had run that play only once in practice. But the failure on the final play was all too reminiscent of Ryan's incompletion to Jones on fourth down with 1:05 left in the divisional playoffs in January, again helping Philly survive. It was a fade from an inside alignment, with Jones inside Mohamed Sanu. Jones made the catch on the right sideline, but he was pushed out of bounds before getting his feet down. If there was a double that goes to Julio, it goes to a certain player.
