With the Green Bay Packers’ 42-24 victory over the Houston Texans this past Sunday night, the Atlanta Falcons are now the lone undefeated team in the NFL.
Atlanta is cruising at 6-0 right now and 1-0 in the division. In fact, this is their first 6-0 start to a season in franchise history.
The Falcons defeated the Oakland Raiders this past Sunday on a Matt Bryant 55-yard field goal at the end of the game. Atlanta had some difficulties with the Raiders and was pushed to the limit, almost losing the game near the end.
Even when Asante Samuel scored a touchdown on a 79 yard interception return with 2:40 left in the game to go up 20-13, the Falcons still gave up a late touchdown to the Raiders as they marched 80 yards down the field to tie the game 20-20 with 41 seconds left. Not exactly what you want to see out of the best team in the league.
