The Atlanta Falcons dropped another heartbreaker to the San Francisco 49ers with a 34-24 loss in potentially the final game played at Candlestick Park.

The Falcons had a strong first half going up 10-3 at the midpoint but then allowed 17 unanswered points in the third and fourth quarters. But the Falcons didn't give up and were able to close the game to 27-24 in the final minutes.

With Atlanta looking for the go-ahead score, 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman picked off a tipped ball and took it 89 yards for a pick-six with less than two minutes remaining in the game, sealing the win for San Francisco.

The Falcons record falls to 4-11 as they are set to return to the Georgia Dome next week to take on the Carolina Panthers. They will be looking ahead to close out the season strongly by building on the positives showed against the 49ers and trying to correct the negatives.
