Matt Ryan threw an 11-yard touchdown to Mohamed Sanu with 31 seconds remaining to lift the Falcons to a 33-32 win over the Packers. The AJC's D. Orlando Ledbetter reports from the Georgia Dome.

 

FLOWERY BRANCH -- The Falcons (5-3) released their official depth chart for the Bucs (3-4)  game, which is set for 8:25 p.m. on Thursday night at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa,

Falcons tight end Jacob Tamme, who suffered a shoulder injury against Green Bay, will not play against Tampa Bay at 8:25 p.m. Thursday night at Raymond James Stadium.

Tamme is the team’s fourth-leading receiver with 22 catches for 210 yards and three touchdowns.

Rookie Austin Hooper, a third-round pick from Stanford, will take the first-team repetitions this week. Hooper has caught 11 passes for 195 yards and one touchdown.

Also, Levin Toilolo will be used in the double tight end formations. Joshua Perkins, who has been inactive for all eight games, will likely be activated.

(The team calls it an ‘unofficial’ depth chart. But if they are releasing it, for our purposes that makes it pretty official.)
