"I think we had opportunities today," Falcons wide receiver Roddy White said after the game, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. It's not like they came out here and just. ... I feel like we kind of gave it away. We just gave it to them. It wasn't nothing they did. It was want we did in not cashing in on opportunities."
Ryan and Drew Brees were on the marquee, but this game became a showcase for two of the NFL's greatest tight ends. Jimmy Graham (nine catches, 146 yards, two touchdowns) was a monster, finding wide-open spaces in the Falcons secondary all afternoon. Tony Gonzalez -- the Mariano Rivera of the tight end position -- was even better, finishing with 11 receptions for 122 yards and two scores.
"We play them against in three weeks and we'll be ready," White said. "It will be at the Dome and hopefully we'll beat them that time."
