Instant Reaction: Falcons Dominate 49ers

The Falcons are back in black as they take on the San Francisco 49ers in front of a hometown crowd at the Georgia Dome. Here are photos from the game.

Devonta Freeman, Taylor Gabriel and Austin Hooper all scored touchdowns in Atlanta's dominant 41-13 home win over the 49ers.

The Falcons were without their No. 1 receiver on Sunday as Julio Jones was sidelined with a toe injury and it didn't hinder Atlanta's offense one bit. Atlanta racked up 550 yards of total offense.

Aldrick Robinson's speed was evident and Matt Ryan took full advantage of it. The WR had a career day recording four catches for 111 yards.

Ryan's performance on Sunday puts him right at the forefront of the MVP conversation. Eight different players caught passes, giving Ryan a near perfect QBR rating of 144.5.

The 41-point outing was the fourth time this year that the Falcons have broken the 40-point barrier, and the Falcons broke the franchise record for points in a season. The team has now scored 469 points on the year.

Atlanta's defense put together another impressive performance, limiting 49ers' running back Carlos Hyde to 71 yards on the ground.

Keanu Neal, Deion Jones and Vic Beasley led the way for the Falcons. Jones forced a fumble, Neal recovered the fumble and Beasley recorded another sack, giving him 14.5 on the year.
