FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Everything seems to be falling into place for the Atlanta Falcons.
First, they knocked off a Philadelphia team in disarray. Then, they rallied against the New York Giants, who can't seem to run out the clock.
Now, the Falcons head to Dallas to take on the Cowboys, who are missing quarterback Tony Romo and star receiver Dez Bryant. Another win would give Atlanta only the fifth 3-0 start in franchise history.
Time to seize the moment.
Coach Dan Quinn stresses that his team is not taking the Cowboys (2-0) lightly. But there's no denying the Falcons' chances of another victory went up significantly when Romo broke his collarbone in a victory over the Eagles last week.
With Brandon Weeden taking over at quarterback, the Falcons are actually favored in Dallas.
