Stop us if you’ve heard this before, but the Atlanta Falcons lost a football game after blowing a large lead.
The Falcons appeared well on their way to earning an impressive road win over the Cowboys when they lead Dallas 20-0 in the first quarter at AT&T Stadium on Sunday. Dak Prescott and Co. mounted a comeback, but all the Falcons had to do was recover an onside kick late in the fourth quarter to lock down their first win of the 2020 season.
Unfortunately for Atlanta, it couldn’t fulfill the task.
The Cowboys recovered Greg Zuerlein’s onside kick after the Falcons seemingly steered clear of the football, which initially didn’t appear as though it would travel the necessary 10 yards.
Dallas quickly got into field goal range, and Zuerlein delivered the dagger by drilling a 46-yard game-winning kick.
As you can imagine, tweets roasting the Falcons came in abundance.
The Falcons will try to rebound from the loss next Sunday when they host the Chicago Bears.
