Fullback Ovie Mughelli came up with a couple of clutch plays for the Falcons.
On third and 19 from the Atlanta 48, Mughelli made a catch and rambled for 16 yards in the second quarter. The Falcons went in to score to make it 10-3.
“When they do call on you to make a play, you’ve got to answer that call,” Mughelli said. “When I got that ball, I was not going to be denied. I was really trying to pick up the first down.”
Mughelli also had the key block on Michael Turner’s 1-yard touchdown run on a fourth-and-goal play in the fourth quarter.
“Just blow the guy up,” Mughelli said. “I hit him, he knifed down and I pushed him. I did my job. If my man is in the end zone, then I’ve done my job.”
