Titans coach Mike Vrabel on the Falcons …

“They have very, very good skill players, they have got a great quarterback. Julio Jones is as good as you could be, but (Calvin) Ridley is as talented, (Mohamed) Sanu is versatile, tough, (Devonta) Freeman runs hard, he runs violent, he runs fast. They have some guys that have played a lot of football up front, they’ve got a good tight end group with Hoop (Austin Hooper) and (Luke) Stocker. So, it’s a great challenge. They’ve got really good skill players and you could see when Matt (Ryan) got into a rhythm on Sunday, completed a lot of passes and got his team back into the football game.”
