Matt Forte doesn't understand why Jets abandoned run in rain vs. Falcons

The Falcons are 2-3 in their past five games played against the Panthers in Charlotte. Entering the game, the Falcons had given up more than 100 rushing yards in each of their past three games, including 167 in a loss to the New England Patriots.

Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons are done with the AFC East. So, when NY finished with just 43 yards on the ground on 22 carries, Forte was a bit confused.

On those two drives, the Jets came away with just three points. But collectively, the Falcons understand they have to turn the intensity up a notch and play sounder football heading into division play.

But doesn't coach Dan Quinn always preach, more than anything, handling business in the division?

Sit Kerley this week and don't even think twice about it. Find any other viable option via the waiver wire since chances are, this will be the weekly case with Kerley unless he either makes some huge plays in the little reps he gets or someone ahead of him gets hurt and his number is called. "We just tried to stress and make sure everybody is doing their job". "You have to analyze your team and see what your guys do best". If you're running the ball and you keep their offense off the field, basically time's running out on them. So far this season, wide receiver Jermaine Kearse has stepped up big time as has Robby Anderson. "It continued to rain the entire game". He has nine touchdowns on the year while racking up 1,844 yards in the air.

The Atlanta Falcons are unlikely to be booking reservations for a return to the Super Bowl just yet, but at least they've discovered what it's like to win again. It sets up interesting strategical decisions for the second half.

After allowing an eight-play, 75-yard drive to the Jets at the start of the game, the Falcons settled down and forced four three-and-outs - six, if you count the two field goals Atlanta forced after NY recovered the botched snaps. Against the Jets, the Falcons' defense stood firm and helped secure an important victory.
