Dan Quinn on Matt Bryant: ``You put everything into it and I also told the team that knowing that you can get your heart broken. This guy [Matt Bryant] has made a million kicks and is pressure and as clutch as you come. There isn't anybody I'd rather have at the moment who kicks extra points, field goals. There's nobody. He's one of the most mentally tough football players I've been around and it hurts today but he'll make big kicks for us again this year.''

Cardinals leading Falcons 20-10 at halftime. Falcons defense still looks like a sieve, allowing rookie QB Kyler Murray to complete 16 of 19 passes for 240 yards with a TD, passer rating of 136.3, and without being sacked. Falcons have surrendered pass plays of 51, 38, 31, and 30 yards. The Falcons' fast start on offense, which included winning the toss and taking the ball and scoring a TD, all went for naught. So much for the bonding trip to Arizona, at least so far.

Falcons lose another strong safety as Johnathan Cyprien was placed on IR with a foot injury. Cyprien played one game vs. Texans after being acquired in a trade from Eagles in exchange for Duke Riley and a 6th-round draft pick. Cyprien played 24 snaps on defense, 3 on special teams and did not leave the Houston game with an injury. The team acquired Cyprien after starting SS Keanu Neal suffered a season-ending Achilles' tear. Also lost safety J.J. Wilcox to ACL in preseason. More Kemal Ishmael?
