Matt Ryan Throws TD Pass to Mohamed Sanu with 31 Seconds Left to Beat Packers

Kyle Newport@@KyleNewportFeatured ColumnistOctober 31, 2016

The Atlanta Falcons brought in Mohamed Sanu this offseason to help the passing game. Now that he has gotten some experience with his new team, he is really starting to make an impact.

Take Sunday, for example.

Atlanta trailed by six points with 31 seconds to play when Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan threw a pass over the Packers defense to a wide-open Sanu in the end zone. With the extra point, the Falcons grabbed a one-point lead.

Atlanta was able to stop Aaron Rodgers one last time on a last-minute drive to secure the 33-32 victory. Sanu had nine catches for 84 yards and a (game-winning) touchdown in the win.
