FALCONS RISE LIKE PHOENIX

By Marc Lawrence — After a dismal 1-7 start, the Atlanta Falcons are one team nobody in the NFL wants to play at the moment. Thanks to the Falcons’ wild, come from behind win Sunday, the NFC no longer goes through San Francisco. The 49ers (11-3) still have the conference’s best record but aren’t even leading their division. That distinction belongs to Seattle given the head-to-head tiebreaker. Julio Jones broke the plane and the 49ers’ hearts. With two seconds remaining, Matt Ryan hit Jones over the middle at the goal line for the game-winning score. The Falcons wideout was initially ruled down at the 1, where time would have run out, but the call was overturned. It came one play after Ryan seemingly hit Austin Hooper the go-ahead TD, only the tight end pressed the ball against the ground before appearing to make an acrobatic catch. The wild sequence was capped off by Atlanta picking up a fumbled lateral in the end zone on the ensuing kickoff to score its second touchdown in the final five seconds.
