Mark Bradley: Down and surely out: The fading Falcons fall to 4-6

Ten points down, time flying, season on the line. The offense finally did its bit, emphasis on "finally." Now it was 19-all, 1:52 remaining, and with a three-and-out the Falcons might well have won in regulation. But there's a reason this defense is rated the NFL's worst by Football Outsiders, and that defense is why a team with this offense was essentially facing playoff elimination before Thanksgiving.
