Falcons flex offensive muscles, blow out Redskins 38-14


Jones was back in the end zone where he belongs, and the Atlanta Falcons looked like the team they were predicted to be in a 38-14 blowout of the Washington Redskins on Sunday that extended their winning streak to three games.

This news comes as the division rival Dallas Cowboys are preparing for a Monday Night Football matchup against the Tennessee Titans, where a win could bring them with striking distance and put serious pressure on Washington over the rest of the season.

The win was the third straight for the Falcons (4-4) and dropped Washington to 5-3, although the Redskins remain in first place in the NFC East. One of Matt Ryan's two interceptions this season happened in Philadelphia, and their average score at home is more than twice the average away game score.

The Redskins defense created plenty of good scenarios by strong play on first and second down before outright collapsing consistently on third down with five or more yards to go.

He entered Week 9 with 53 catches for 812 yards this season.

"Caught us with our trousers down and hit us in the mouth", Washington cornerback Josh Norman said. Already without left tackle Trent Williams after surgery to fix his dislocated right thumb, Washington lost left guard Shaun Lauvao to a left knee injury, right guard Brandon Scherff to a shoulder injury and struggled to move the ball or stop the Falcons when it mattered.

"I'm proud of the way we played today", Ryan said.

"Got to be better", Swearinger said.

"It wasn't the preparation, just the executing", Washington safety D.J. Swearinger said. But he only ran nine times for a measly 17 yards through the opening two quarters, when Washington's best gain was 22 on a scramble by quarterback Alex Smith. K Matt Bryant missed his second consecutive game with a right hamstring injury, and CB Robert Alford was out with an ankle injury, the first game he has missed since 2015.

The Redskins were also hampered by injuries to three offensive linemen.

Atlanta's offense converted on their first eight third-downs, which Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said was a big key in the loss.
