Falcons top Jets to snap three-game losing streak

Ryan, who fumbled away a couple of snaps, called it "some of the hardest conditions I've played in for the length of the game".

Quarterback Josh McCown completed almost 80 percent of his passes for 257 yards and a pair of touchdowns, but outside of the plays Anderson made, most of the Jets' throws were of the short-yardage variety. One of the biggest issues with Kerley is he tends to drop easy passes on a weekly basis and as of late, barely gets even five passes thrown his way. Keep Ryan as your QB1 with confidence this week.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. - Atlanta Falcons All-Pro wide receiver Julio Jones continued with the one-game-at-a-time mantra, but he knows the stakes are about to get higher. "When you're closing games out, you definitely got to be able to run the ball".

Next up for the Jets is home game against the division rival Bills on Thursday night. "That part of the game felt real familiar in terms of everybody just being assignment-sound, doing their jobs, not stepping out of the gaps to go make a play". It just so happens to put the team in a bad situation.

The Falcons moved to 4-3 on the season, while the Jets fell to 3-5.

Just eight months ago, they were in the Super Bowl. "That kind of resiliency and that kind of toughness is what this group stands for".

NOWHERE TO RUN: With the weather expected to be miserable, the Jets were aiming to run the ball a bunch.

"I only had four carries this game", Forte said (via Rich Cimini of ESPN). So, when NY finished with just 43 yards on the ground on 22 carries, Forte was a bit confused. There should've been at least one person getting 20 carries, the way the weather was. I think we ran the ball only 20 times, something like that.

"I thought we had opportunities to create a few more", Quinn said.

"I don't really think we ran the ball enough with the weather being the way it was", Forte told the Daily News.

But despite his disagreements, Forte says he was not ready to be confrontational with offensive coordinator John Morton.
