Recap


Falcons 30, Eagles 17:
Matt Ryan passed for 262 yards and three touchdowns as visiting Atlanta had little trouble with Philadelphia and its new defensive coordinator.

Julio Jones led the receiving corps with five catches for 123 yards and a score and Jason Snelling found the end zone for the first time this season for the Falcons (7-0), who had little trouble passing despite high winds from approaching Hurricane Sandy.

The Eagles (3-4), who replaced defensive coordinator Juan Castillo during the bye week, allowed Atlanta to streak out to a 24-7 lead at the half. The loss dropped head coach Andy Reid to 13-1 following the bye week.

The Falcons had little trouble moving the ball early in the game, eating up 8:44 on a 16-play opening drive before Ryan found Drew Davis for a 15-yard touchdown. Ryan showed off Atlanta’s quick-strike ability with a 63-yard touchdown pass to Jones that made it 21-7 with 6:41 left in the half.

Philadelphia held the Falcons out of the end zone in the second half but could not close the gap. Michael Vick passed for 178 yards and a touchdown and did not turn the ball over.
