Instant Reaction: Falcons 23, Broncos 16

The Falcons' offense got rolling early on Sunday putting together another dominant performance, starting with the ground game that led them to a 23-16 win over the Denver Broncos at Mile High Stadium.

Devonta Freeman found success against a stout defensive line, rushing for 88 yards. Atlanta's ability to get the run game going helped immensely as Matt Ryan utilized Tevin Coleman in the pass game mostly, with the speedster recording 132 receiving yards, a career high.

Denver's offensive line had no answer for Vic Beasley, Jr., as he recorded a career-best 3.5 sacks. He also led the team in tackles with six on the day.

Atlanta's defense eliminated the Broncos' ability to get their rushing attack going—Denver was kept to just 84 rushing yards.
