Key Player: Devonta Freeman

Devonta Freeman played a monumental role in the Atlanta Falcons success. He racked up 106 rushing yards on 21 carries, adding one rushing touchdown. On the receiving end, he caught three passes for 32 yards. Without Freeman, the Falcons offense would have struggled heavily and the outcome of the game would have been much different.

GAME RECAP AND ANALYSIS

The Detroit Lions failed to ever take the lead during the game. They did, however, hold the lead for a few seconds before the touchdown was reversed and the game was called.

With less than 20 seconds to go, Matthew Stafford found Golden Tate who reached for the end zone after completing the pass. First ruled a touchdown, the call was reversed and by rule took a mandatory ten seconds off the clock. There was only eight seconds left on the clock after the play, resulting in the end of the game and a Falcons victory.

The Lions defense played well, securing three interceptions on the day, one of which Glover Quinn took all the way for a touchdown.

The Lions will look to move on as they face division rival, the Minnesota Vikings, next week. The Falcons will look to continue their undefeated season against the Buffalo Bills.

Originally from Michigan, I now reside in the sunshine state. I am a freshman at the University of Tampa majoring in sports journalism and sports have been an integral part of my life since my first steps. Up until third grade, sports were just a thing that I played. In third grade, I was introduced to the idea of storytelling. For my assignment I was supposed to write a one page story on anything I wanted. Instead, I wrote a chapter book about a baseball game. It was at that moment that I knew what I wanted to be when I grow up. Mixing sports and writing for me was a perfect match and I have been doing it ever since. Even though I now live in Florida, Michigan sports are where my heart is. The Detroit Lions, while tough to watch at times, are the only thing that gets me excited on Sunday’s. If you’re as passionate about the Lions as I am, sit back, relax, and take a seat.
