FLOWERY BRANCH — Falcons offensive tackles Sam Baker and Tyson Clabo had strong showings against Denver’s Elvis Dumervil and Von Miller, head coach Mike Smith noted.
The Falcons’ offensive line has given up two sacks and nine quarterback hits this season, and Miller had Denver’s only sack.
“Our [offensive] line is pass-protecting extremely well,” Smith said. “Sam Baker is as healthy as he’s ever been. Tyson Clabo was very good in pass protection [against Denver.] Both of those guys had a tough draw.
“Those two guys that they bring off the edge are outstanding pass rushers, and for the most part we felt like we neutralized them.”
With two touchdown passes, Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan now has 100 career touchdown passes. He has helped the sack numbers by running more this season. He has six carries for 19 yards against Denver. He had three rushed for 25 yards and a touchdown against Kansas City.
Ryan threw 36 passes without an interception against Denver, extending his franchise-record to 233 consecutive pass attempts without an interception.
