Matt Ryan finds Austin Hooper to give Falcons the lead vs. Saints

Austin Hooper, Matt Ryan, Falcons, Saints

The Atlanta Falcons knew full well they were going to need to come out swinging against the New Orleans Saints in Week 10. Quarterback Matt Ryan and tight end Austin Hooper have been able to oblige.

Ryan connected with Hooper in the end zone to cap a grueling 17-play, 75 -yard drive, via NFL Twitter:

The extended drive from the Falcons took up a whole eight minutes before Hooper was able to find paydirt. Not only did Ryan put some much-needed points up on the board, but he effectively kept quarterback Drew Brees and the Saints offense off the field for an extended period of time.

If Atlanta is going to try and secure an upset in New Orleans, they will need to try and take a similar approach. Fortunately, the passing game seems more than up to the task. Ryan has done a stellar job of overcoming his ankle injury while Hooper has now hauled in his sixth touchdown of the 2019 NFL season.
