Falcons looking for more than field goals against Saints

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons can't afford to lean on Matt Bryant's powerful right leg this week.

Field goals won't be enough to keep pace against the high-scoring New Orleans Saints on Thursday night.

Bryant's four field goals provided all of Atlanta's scoring until Julio Jones caught a 34-yard touchdown pass from Ryan with less than two minutes remaining against Dallas on Sunday. That touchdown tied the game before the Cowboys won 22-19 on Brett Maher's 42-yard field goal as time expired.
