(KSDK Sports / AP) -- Whic play, from the Rams 31-24 loss to the Falcons, broke the camel's back for you today? For some it may have been when Osi Umenyiora returned an interception 68 yards for a touchdown early in the second quarter.
The play occurred when Daryl Richardson could not hold onto a tight pass from Sam Bradford. The ball appeared to ricochet off Richardson's hands and into the air and loving arms of Umenyiora. So before you knew it, The Rams (1-1) fell behind 21-0. And at that moment, to us here, the air got sucked right out of the game.
Atlanta led 24-3 at halftime before St Louis fought back on a pair of short touchdown passes by Sam Bradford.
Bradford finished with 352 yards and three TDs.
The Rams began really teeing off on Ryan in the second half, and the Falcons offense bogged down. Austin hauled in a 6-yard scoring pass from Bradford late in the third, and Austin Pettis' 3-yard TD catch made it 24-17 with more than 12 minutes remaining.
Huge day for Falcon's receiver Julio Jones who hauled in 11 passes for 182 yards, including an 81-yard touchdown, and the Atlanta Falcons held on for their first win of the season, 31-24 over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
Ryan threw for 374 yards and two scores despite taking quite a beating behind the Falcons' shaky offense line. Jason Snelling clinched it for the Falcons (1-1) with an 11-yard touchdown run with 6:18 remaining - Atlanta's longest play of the day on the ground.
