The Atlanta Falcons were in full meltdown mode once again Sunday afternoon.
The Falcons took a 16-point lead into the fourth quarter of their Week 3 matchup against the Bears at Mercedez-Benz Stadium on the back of a 10-point third quarter. But their game quickly fell apart at the seams with Chicago scoring three unanswered touchdowns in the fourth behind Nick Foles, who replaced Mitchell Trubisky at quarterback in the third quarter.
Atlanta ultimately lost 30-26.
This is the second straight week the Falcons have blown a second-half lead — and we’re just three games into the 2020 season. Atlanta owned a 20-point lead on the Dallas Cowboys entering the second half of its Week 2 contest, but wound up losing to them, too.
Naturally, Twitter took notice. And they certainly didn’t hold back.
The Falcons are the first team in NFL history to lose back-to-back games when entering the fourth quarter with a 15-point-plus lead, per Elias Sports.
