Falcons keep pressure on Bucs
ATLANTA — Devonta Freeman ran for three touchdowns, Matt Ryan passed for two and the Falcons clinched their first winning season since 2012.
Atlanta began the day tied with the Bucs for the NFC South lead. The Falcons made sure they didn't overlook the 49ers. "When you get into December football, you better do that," coach Dan Quinn said. "Every time you have a chance to go battle, you better have your intent right, your preparation right."
Freeman rushed for 139 yards. Aldrick Robinson, stepping up with star receiver Julio Jones missing his second straight game with a toe injury, had a career-best 111 yards on four receptions.
