With his 18.4 PPR fantasy points today, Cordarrelle Patterson has a streak of four straight games with at least 16.2 points. He had only four such performances TOTAL in his career entering 2021, in 127 games.

The 44.9 PPR fantasy points combined that the Jets defense allowed to the Falcons' tight ends was the most that any team has allowed to its opponents' tight ends in a game since... the Jets allowed 45.0 to Darren Waller and the Raiders in Week 13 last year.

Kyle Pitts' 26.9 PPR fantasy points today for the fifth-most by a rookie tight end this century: 30.9 Owen Daniels, 2006 Wk8 30.2 Rob Gronkowski, 2010 Wk10 28.4 Jordan Reed, 2013 Wk7 27.8 O.J. Howard, 2017 Wk7 26.9 Zach Miller, 2009 Wk17 26.9 Pitts, 2021 Wk5

Falcons 27, Jets 20: Atlanta will head into the bye with some good things to build on following a short-handed win in London. The Falcons saw the continued emergence of Cordarrelle Patterson, the breakout of Kyle Pitts (9-119-1) and a consistent outing from Matt Ryan (33-45-0-342, 2 TD). The Falcons are still building, but Sunday provided a real step in progress considering they were without Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage on offense. There's reason to think the offense could be dangerous soon.

Falcons 20, Jets 3 -- Halftime: That had to be the most complete half Atlanta has played this season. The offense moved the ball well and consistently rushing (4.4 ypc) and passing (6.75 ypa). Defensively, the Falcons held New York to 80 yards and 3.5 yards per play. Plus they got their first interception of the year. Atlanta, minus their top two nickel corners & top two receivers have been able to adjust. Kyle Pitts (6-64-1) has been the key for Atlanta on offense.

Falcons inactives: WR Calvin Ridley, WR Russell Gage, DL Marlon Davidson, S Erik Harris, CB Avery Williams, QB Feleipe Franks, DL John Cominsky
