Bills vs. Falcons: Highlights, game tracker and more

DMan's NFL Week 4 best

Jones jogged off innocently enough in the second quarter but didn't return because of a hip flexor injury.

It really limited what Matt Ryan could do in the passing game late, but could have used at least one of them in their failed attempt at staying flawless.

Buffalo Bills middle linebacker Preston Brown (52) to a win over the Atlanta Falcons during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Oct. 1, 2017, in Atlanta. Mohamed Sanu left with a hamstring injury. In the third quarter, Ryan dropped back and uncorked a deep bomb intended for Gabriel that wound up getting picked off by Bills cornerback Micah Hyde. Jones, who had three catches for 30 yards in the first quarter, never returned.

The Falcons, last season's beaten Super Bowl finalists, saw their flawless start derailed after a gritty performance by the Bills.

No, Ryan didn't have his best game. But the injuries certainly didn't help the Falcons' quest to improve to 4-0. Right tackle Ryan Schraeder is still in concussion protocol and will be replaced once again Ty Sambrailo. Against Atlanta, the rollouts, play-action passing, play calling by offensive coordinator Rick Dennison returned, allowing Taylor to read the field better. Coleman led Atlanta in both rushing and receiving. However running back Devonta Freeman and wide receiver Julio Jones are the focal points of the offense. And based on some of the secondary issues the Falcons had against the Bills, Allen's presence as a field general definitely is needed.
