Falcons vs Texans: 5 Things We Learned in Atlanta's 17-10 Loss

There wasn't much that went Atlanta's way in their 17-10 loss to the Houston Texans. Instead of leaving on a three-game win streak, the Falcons now head to Carolina with a 7-5 record.

Atlanta gave up their first 100-yard game to an opposing running back this season, fitting that it would come against last year's rushing champion. 

The Falcons didn't put points on the scoreboard until five minutes to go in the first half, with a 19-yard field goal from Matt Bryant. Despite their scoring woes, they were in the game the entire way, and had a chance to tie things up as time expired.

With injuries, penalties and absolute confusion at times, it was a disappointing performance in general for the Dirty Birds. But, it was against one of the best defenses in the league. While it was tough to watch at times, the Falcons will have a lot to take away from this loss.

Here's a look at some of the things we learned about the team this week.
