Falcons Drive Of The Week: Schaub’s Bomb Sets Up Score


Recommended Posts

With Atlanta’s 23-17 win over Washington Thursday, the Falcons churned 359 yards (out-gaining the Redskins by 125 yards) and scored points on four of their 11 possessions — a touchdown and three field goals.

J.D. McKissic scored a second touchdown, but it wasn’t during a Falcons possession as he returned the opening kickoff of the second half 101 yards for a score. In all, Atlanta made it into Washington’s red zone three times and scored on all three chances — two field goals and a touchdown.

Each week we’ll select a Falcons Drive of the Game, and Thursday’s came on a short three-play possession. But instead of a dreaded three-and-out, Atlanta needed only three plays to punch the football into the end zone in the second quarter.

Atlanta traveled 72 yards in just 1:23 with most of the field churned on the first play of the drive.
