Falcons-Saints game selected for NFL Replay show


The Atlanta Falcons' 27-24 overtime victory over the New Orleans Saints has been selected by NFL Network to air in the 9:15 p.m. EDT time slot on Tuesday night's NFL Replay show.

The game will be "encored" in a fast-paced, 75-minute format that will feature interviews from Sunday's winning locker room along with day-after game interviews from kicker Matt Bryant, wide receiver Roddy White and safety Thomas DeCoud.

NFL Replay offers an exclusive look at four of the previous week's games in a condensed, 75-minute, high-octane format. With the use of bonus NFL Films and NFL Network footage, including never-before-seen camera angles and coaches' commentary, combined with exclusive wired sound from the field, locker rooms and sidelines, viewers will experience the game like never before.

The Falcons (2-1) rolled up 417 yards of offense, including 202 yards on the ground, en route to defeating the defending Super Bowl champion Saints (2-1) on Sunday at the Louisiana Superdome. Sunday's win marked Atlanta's first victory in the Superdome since 2002.

Quarterback Matt Ryan completed 19-of-30 passes for 228 yards, two touchdowns with no interceptions on his way to a QB rating of 108.8. The Falcons are 11-0 when Ryan's passer rating is 100 or better.

Falcons' running back Michael Turner powered Atlanta's punishing ground attack rushing for 114 yards and one touchdown on 30 carries. Tight end Tony Gonzalez had 110 yards on eight catches, including a 13-yard touchdown strike from Ryan.

The Falcons are back in action this Sunday at the Georgia Dome when they host the San Francisco 49ers (0-3).

Atlanta will break out its 1966 throwback uniforms for the first time this season against San Francisco. The Falcons were 2-0 when they wore their throwback uniforms in 2009.

The Falcons defeated the Carolina Panthers 28-20 on Sept. 20 and outlasted the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20-17 on Nov. 29. Both of those wins took place at the Georgia Dome where the Falcons are 14-3 under head coach Mike Smith.

Sunday's kickoff against San Francisco is set for 1 p.m.
