Trailing 20-17 late in the 4th quarter and facing a do-or-die 4th down, the Atlanta Falcons faced a heavy blitz as the Eagles sold out and Julio Jones burned them.

The Falcons, who had lost their previous three games against the Eagles got one back on Sunday Night Football and Falcons Analyst Dave Archer explains how they went out and grabbed that game from the Eagles. 

"I didn't think about punting the ball, around midfield if you want to win the game you have to go take the game. A brilliant call, they had seen zero blitz a ton, Ryan couldn't remember a team that showed zero blitz as much. That's the perfect play and the execution was perfect."

The game wasn't over after that long touchdown, it still required a strong tackle from Isaiah Oliver to secure the win.
