ATLANTA (AP) The Atlanta Falcons are still searching for answers following their epic collapse in Dallas.
Despite holding a 20-point lead in the first quarter and still up by 15 with about five minutes remaining, the Falcons managed to lose a game that was theirs to win.
They botched the fielding of an onside kick even after coach Dan Quinn called a timeout to bring everyone to the sideline to go over what was coming. Their defense gave up 570 yards and allowed four touchdowns in the second half. The rushing attack couldn't break off a big run. The Falcons could only watch helplessly as Greg Zuerlein kicked a 46-yard winning field goal as time expired in a 40-39 loss.
