Falcons score opening-drive TD in eighth straight game

Print

Opening drive touchdowns have become a given in Falcons games.

Atlanta took the opening kickoff in Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers and marched 80 yards on 13 plays, culminating in Mohamed Sanu's two-yard touchdown catch on a shovel pass from Matt Ryan.

To find the last time the Falcons didn't score on their initial possession, you have to go all the way back to Nov. 13, a Week 10 loss to the Eagles.

Ryan had a trio of third-down conversions on the opening drive. The MVP favorite has been an absolute monster in such situations.

That's video game stuff.
