Cleveland rocked


The Falcons went into Cleveland prepared for a Dawg fight. They got one in a rough, physical game that left both teams battered. But Kroy Biermann's amazing tipped interception to himself that went for a touchdown proved to be the moment the Falcons had been waiting for all game to take a 20-10 win to move to 4-1


Who wants a beer, man?**

Kroy Biermann earned play of the game on an amazing athletic play late in the fourth quarter. With the Browns moving the ball with ease, Biermann tipped a Jake Delhomme pass up into the air, dived for the interception, got up, brushed himself off and rumbled to the end zone for a touchdown. The score put the Falcons up for good and the game out of reach for the Browns.

Roddy continues to rock

Roddy White picked up right where he left off in the first four games of the season. He led all receivers in yards and caught a 45-yard touchdown pass to burn the Browns' defense in the third quarter. With clutch play after clutch play, White has quickly become the spark that makes the Falcons' offense go.

The Predator

John Abraham was simply predatory on Browns quarterbacks Sunday. Abe finished with two sacks, the second of which knocked quarterback Seneca Wallace out of the game. Jake Delhomme took over and felt the Predator's pressure the rest of the game. Abraham's teams are 16-5 when the defensive end records two sacks or more in a game.


Slow start**

The Falcons had troubles getting the offense into high gear early on. After a couple of long drives deep within Browns' territory, the Falcons struggled in the red zone to score six. Atlanta had to settle for two Matt Bryant field goals before his third attempt was blocked. White's touchdown put the Falcons ahead in the third quarter.


Over the Hillis**

Cleveland running back Peyton Hillis was the man with a target on his back for the Falcons. The tough, bruising back needs a wrecking ball to bring to the ground, and the Falcons did a great job of wrapping him up when they could. Hillis was held to less than 30 yards Sunday as the Falcons' defense kept him in check.
