That marked the second time in two weeks the Falcons suffered an embarrassing come-from-behind defeat. In Week 2, the Falcons got out to a 20-point lead over the Dallas Cowboys. Atlanta blew the contest, losing 40-39. The Falcons allowed the Cowboys to score 30 points in the second half.
As depressing as it is, this is kinda what the Falcons do now. Who could forget the team blowing a 28-3 lead in Super Bowl LI?
Given that, fans were prepared with their best insults as the Falcons were in the midst of yet another epic collapse. The tweets did not disappoint:

The Falcons just did it in back-to-back weeks.

If I were the Atlanta Falcons I would simply not blow double-digit leads every week— Jason Schreier (@jasonschreier) September 27, 2020

The Falcons will hope to avoid yet another second-half loss when the team takes on the Green Bay Packers in Week 4. Whether they’ll go into that contest with Dan Quinn as their head coach remains to be seen.
