The Atlanta Falcons and the St. Louis Rams on Fox. A good day for the Rams (they won their first home game). Not a good day for the Falcons.
Just passed the top of the first quarter, Rams tight end Randy McMichael gave his team a touchdown (and then he walked towards the stands and handed the ball to a little boy and his father). Towards the bottom of the first quarter, Rams wide receiver Torry Holt made a TD. Rams wide receiver Isaac Bruce got more points for his team with a one-handed catch TD in the bottom of the second quarter. Going into halftime, St. Louis 21, Atlanta 0.
Third quarter brought a field goal for the Falcons and no other points for either team. The fourth quarter began with Chris Redman going in as Falcons quarterback for Joey Harrington. Falcons wide receiver Roddy White made a touchdown but couldn’t hold onto the ball for the second-point conversion attempt. Thus, at the top of the fourth quarter, St. Louis 21. Atlanta 9. Halfway into the fourth quarter, Falcons wide receiver Michael Jenkins made a TD. As the seconds ticked off the clock in the quarter, the Falcons couldn’t get the ball into the end zone for a game-winning touchdown. Rams running back Steven Jackson put a TD on the board. St. Louis 28. Atlanta 16. Final answer.
