The Atlanta Falcons may be the most cursed team in the NFL. Ever since blowing a 28-3 lead in Superbowl LI to the New England Patriots, they’ve never recovered.
This season they became to be known for one thing…..blowing 4th quarter leads.
They fired their coach and GM, and the week after they won their first game. Yesterday looked like a second win in a row, all they had to do was run out the clock and not give gun slinger Matt Stafford the ball……but they didn’t because it’s THE FALCONS.
RB Todd Gurley scored a touch down when all the team needed was a first down. This epitomizes the 2020 Falcons.

After the TD the Lions got the ball, and we all knew what was gonna happen next.

I’ve never been more sure of anything than I was that the Falcons were gonna lose the game after that Gurley TD.

Falcons continue to lose in IMPOSSIBLE ways.
– Todd Gurley accidentally falls into end zone for go-ahead TD when Atlanta has ability to run out clock for win w/ chip shot FG (22-16, ATL, 1:12 remaining)
– Lions march down field for GW TD as time expires (23-22 DET win) pic.twitter.com/uaIQ5tYkXt
