Falcons vs. Lions: 5 Things We Learned in Atlanta's 23-16 Win

The Atlanta Falcons improved to 4-3 with a 23-16 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. It was a sloppy game filled with injuries and penalties, but Atlanta came through in the end with a win.

Matt Ryan gave fans a scare when he went down at one point after his ankle was stepped on by his own lineman. Luckily for the Falcons, he ran back out of the locker room shortly afterwards and told Chris Redman to take a seat.

The Lions got off to a great start this season, but they have now lost two games in a row. Matthew Stafford didn't have his best game, but the play calling for the Lions didn't help his cause.

Atlanta needed this win. Instead of falling below .500, they now have a positive record and more to build on. Here's a few things we learned from Sunday's game.
