A win is a win.
It doesn't matter how a team gets there, as long as it scores more than opponent, and that's what the Atlanta Falcons did Sunday for the first time this season.
Despite a slow day on offense, the Falcons scored 10 points in the final 4:13, including a last-second Younghoe Koo field goal, to beat the New York Giants 17-14.
Before the Falcons' final two drives, the team did not show much of a sign that they were going to win. The offense looked anemic at times, but better than the hapless Giants who fell to 0-3. If the Falcons had faced a majority of the teams in the NFL this week, they probably wouldn't have pulled out a win. They'll face better teams later in the season to prove that theory, but for now they can celebrate their win.
Oh-and-17 is no longer a possibility.
