Falcons offense keeps building steam in 45-32 win vs. Saints

NEW ORLEANS (AP) For all of Dan Quinn's background as a defensive specialist, the Atlanta Falcons' second-year coach is fielding an offense about as good as anyone right now.

Matt Ryan has been efficient. Running backs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman are wearing down defenses while keeping one another fresh. The offensive line is winning praise for its run-blocking and pass-protection. And the Falcons are outscoring even explosive opponents, as they did in a 45-32 triumph over the New Orleans Saints on Monday night.

"We wanted to stay aggressive and keep attacking," Quinn said. "The team did a very nice job of mixing up the run and pass."
