It's a mixed bag. On one hand you want to praise the defense for creating those 3 turnovers that generated 13 points, but on the other hand you want to crap on the offense for needing those 3 turnovers to create those points against the Raiders defense.
And you want to give them credit for handling the adversity and pulling out the W in the end, but at the same time, you want to knock them for having so much adversity against a Raider team that is probably the weakest opponent they'll face all year.
If the Falcons play the way they've played the past 3 weeks over the next 10 games, they might wind up limping their way to a 9-7 record.
Let's just hope it's just the Falcons playing down to their opponent, and over the next month we start to see the A and B-level Falcon football we got accustomed to seeing in Weeks 1 thru 3.
