The Falcons showed no mercy in the third quarter. A Devonta Freeman touchdown catch, which upon replay review was reversed from it’s initial spot at the 1-yard line, padded the Atlanta lead, ended a drive that took an important 5:08 off the clock and answered Green Bay’s score in devastating fashion. Matt Bryant missed the PAT, but nobody cared with the game so out of hand. 37-7, Falcons.
