NFL 2010 Thursday Night Wrap Up
Baltimore @ Atlanta – This game pretty much went as I thought it would all the way up to the end. The Falcons were able to move the ball against the Ravens defense in the air, but not on the ground as we saw Turners' numbers (17 carries, 39 yards). Roddy White did indeed play and play well he did. White ended the game, literally, with 12 receptions for 138 yards, and 2 TDs (with his last one being the game winner). The Ravens scored a TD with 1:05 left on the clock in the 4th quarter and we (yes, you did too) all thought that it was over. Well, the Ravens defense choked and after some incidental contact, White walked into the end zone for the game winner. The Ravens played pretty well for the majority of the game, with that bend, but don't break mentality. Joe Flacco led the Ravens with a good game (22 of 34, for 215 yards, 3 TDs, and 1 INT) and thought he had a game winner in hand. Normally, scoring the go ahead points and then putting the Ravens defense on the field means a 'W' for the Ravens, but Matty 'Ice' Ryan (32 of 50 for 316 yards, 3 TDs) quickly led his team to the 'W' at home. One team had to win. Great way to step up for the Falcons. Inquisitive Mind 0 - 1 for the week.
