The Atlanta Falcons needed a boost, down by 10 points to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday. Mohamed Sanu and Matt Ryan provided it.

Check out this fake. Ryan tossed to a running back, who pitched to Sanu on a fake reverse. Then Ryan rolled out with a wheel route. Nobody covered him, and Sanu’s pass was perfect.

This score pulled the Falcons to within within three points, 17-14, midway through the third quarter.
