FLOWERY BRANCH – Lost the shuffle following the 20-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns, was that Falcons rookie tight end Michael Palmer had his first NFL reception.
One the first play from scrimmage in the third quarter, Matt Ryan threw a pass to Palmer and he picked up 11 yards and a first down. The Falcons were backed up at the 15 and Palmer gave them some breathing room.
Palmer, who played at Parkview High and Clemson, made the team as an undrafted rookie free agent.
He has been active and has played in all of the games this season.
