‘‘I thought our defense did an outstanding job again. They were put in some tough situations after turnovers,’’ Falcons coach Mike Smith said, adding that slowing Martin was one of the keys to the game as well.
‘‘We knew it was going to be one of our ‘musts,’ and I thought we did a nice job,’’ Smith added. ‘‘I thought we played the run extremely well, controlled the line of scrimmage. That is an outstanding running back.’’
