It was time for the Falcons Report on Dukes and Bell as the guys talked about the moves that were made at the trade deadline Tuesday. Of the moves, there was only one that might have made sense to the Atlanta Falcons.

The guys then shifted the attention to the Redskins and their second-ranked run defense.

“This is a team that is pretty good defensively, and hey they just added a piece to their defense in Ha Ha Clinton Dix," said Mike Bell. "So he will be back there with DJ Swearinger and I’m worried if we can get Adrian Peterson on the ground.”

“Their front seven is stout," said Carl Dukes. "They’re only giving up about 80 yards on the ground. We have to protect Matt [Ryan] and give him time because it’s going to be tough sledding against them on the ground.”
