Recap of August 25.

Falcons offense struggles again in loss

The Atlanta Falcons were in Jacksonville, Florida yesterday as they faced off against the Jaguars in their third preseason game. The Falcons offense left fans in disappointment not scoring a touchdown during the contest. Falcons fell to the Jaguars 17-6. Falcons are now 0-3 during the preseason.

Matt Ryan didn’t look like himself only completing 5-12 of his passes for 57 yards. He was also sacked three times. Tevin Coleman was the leading rusher for the Falcons with 38 yards on 7 carries.

Don’t worry Atlanta. It’s the preseason.


Braves fall short in Miami

Miami Marlins knocked off the Braves on Saturday pushing the four game series to a, 2-1 Miami lead. A two-run home-run by the Marlins in the 7th inning was too much for the Braves as they were shutout until the 9th inning. Miami won 3-1.

Starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez received the loss in the matchup moving his record to 6-5.
