What the Falcons Said After Losing to the Bolts - Joe Gigliotti
"As players, it’s our responsibility to make him right and to go out there and make the plays, and we had two chances on third-and-short and then fourth-and-short and we didn’t get it done. From a player’s perspective, that’s the point that’s very disappointing." – QB Matt Ryan

Denzel Perryman Dominant in Win - Hayley Elwood
"He knows what he means to this football team and we told him that throughout the game," added Head Coach Mike McCoy.  "He just didn’t want to come off the field, and he took off a couple plays until his shoulder felt better.  (But) he went back out there."

SD-ATL Grades: Rookie Joey Bosa Impresses Again in Chargers' Overtime Victory - Taylor Wright
Denzel Perryman had a complete game in run defense and rushing the passer. Joey Bosa was a force to be reckoned with rushing the passer; Bosa recorded two sacks, one hit, and three QB hurries, all helping to lead to the Falcons’ inconsistencies on offense.

Chargers rally vs. Falcons, escape with road victory - Eric Williams
The victory gave the Chargers their first two-game winning streak since the 2014 season. At 3-4, San Diego will face the defending Super Bowl champion Broncos next Sunday. The Chargers beat the Broncos Oct. 14, but this time travel to Sports Authority Field. San Diego will need another win to stay in the postseason conversation.

Dan Quinn defends fourth-and-1 OT call: 'Just a gut feeling I went with' - Vaughn McClure
Honestly, I had a real belief we were going to make it and just keep the drive going and keep extending it," Quinn said. "Just a gut feeling that I went with. It didn't work. We can second-guess. That's easy to do, but it was more a mindset. I had such a belief in the guys to go get aggressive and get that half a yard that we needed. So when we didn't, that was a costly mistake.''
