Georgia Dome, Atlanta, GA
ATLANTA (AP) -- Michael Vick sat on the Georgia Dome turf, looking around in disbelief while the boos came at him from all directions.He lost the ball, his helmet -- and the game.
|Scouts Inc.'s take ...|
Browns defensive coordinator Todd Grantham did an excellent job of mixing in his multiple defensive schemes and disguising coverages, which disrupted the flow of the Falcons' passing attack. Grantham also utilized ROLB Kamerion Wimbley as a spy on Michael Vick (above) in third-down situations, which forced Vick to stay in the pocket in critical third-down situations. Even though the Falcons had over 149 yards rushing the Browns didn't allow any explosive running plays.
The Browns continue to struggle on the offensive side of the ball. The Falcons' defense did a good job of restricting Cleveland's running lanes and forcing the Browns into a one-dimensional attack through the air. However, QB Charlie Frye did a good job of managing the game, taking what the defense gave him and didn't make any critical game-changing mistakes.
Steve Heiden partially blocked a punt by Atlanta late in the first half, but Droughns fumbled two plays later. ... The half ended with a wild play. Frye fumbled, the Falcons recovered near midfield and pulled off two laterals before DeAngelo Hall was finally shoved out of bounds at the Cleveland 17 with no time left.
