One of the funnier moments of a young NFL season came in the second half of Atlanta’s 45-32 win over the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football.
Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan found himself in position to throw a block on former Auburn defensive lineman Nick Fairley, who now plays for the Saints. But Ryan thought better of it and wisely fell to the ground instead.

Ryan and the Falcons improved to 2-1 with Ryan throwing a pair of touchdown passes. Meanwhile, Fairley must be frustrated playing a big role in one of the worst defenses in the league and with the Saints falling to 0-3.
