"I just took a deep breath, settled down and tried to go forth from there," he said.
Overall, he felt confident about his play, despite his inability to lead the Falcons into the end zone. He did get the Falcons their only points and later led them inside the 20, but Jason Elam missed a 35-yard field goal.
"We were moving the ball well," he said. "It's a shame we didn't score some points. As well as we were moving the ball down field, we got into position, we just couldn't finish the drives."
Now, it's up to the coaches.
