Roundtable Bills at Falcons

As the Bills' locker room opened to the media following their 23-17 upset victory over the Atlanta Falcons, McCoy was there to greet reporters, telling them - loudly - that "y'all picked us to lose, right?"

Julio Jones jogged off the field during the second quarter with a trainer at his side. Sanu was ruled out for the game with a hamstring injury. Jones, who had three catches for 30 yards in the first quarter, never returned.

Jones was limited in practice leading up to the game due to a hip injury. While it would be nice for the Falcons to stay undefeated heading into their bye-week, a win for the Bills would surely send shock waves through the National Football League and AFC East. But the injuries certainly didn't help the Falcons' quest to improve to 4-0. His dual-threat ability made for a hard game plan for Falcons defensive coordinator Marquand Manuel. And the Falcons were without their best leader with starting free safety Ricardo Allen also sidelined by a concussion. A win would make McDermott the first Buffalo coach to win three of his first four games since Kay Stephenson in 1983.

Running back LeSean McCoy was once again held to less than 100 rushing yards. However, a little higher circumstances against the Falcons, as both came late in the game, with one giving them Bills the lead and another providing a few insurance points. Have thoughts on how the Bills and Falcons are performing?
