Falcons 23, Broncos 16

Falcons for real

DENVER — The Falcons now have a signature win under coach Dan Quinn. Behind running back Tevin Coleman, who played at high altitude with the sickle cell trait that caused some concern last week, the Falcons knocked the Super Bowl champion Broncos from the ranks of the unbeaten. Atlanta has won four straight since losing to the Bucs in Week 1. Rookie Paxton Lynch made his starting debut for Denver. "I'm upset obviously because we lost but I'm happy I got the first one under my belt," Lynch said.
