Normally, we go through the passing offense, run offense, run defense, pass defense, special teams and coaching following Falcons’ games.

But after the Falcons defeated the Panthers, 22-10, coach Dan Quinn gave everyone an A.

“My grade for tonight as a team is an A because these guys are tough as hell, they love one another, and they’re ready to battle,” Quinn said. “Past that, I couldn’t be more excited for the group.”
