Falcons DST burned on the ground
by Larry Hartstein |

The Falcons DST could not stop the run in the loss at San Francisco, giving up 199 yards on 30 attempts or 6.6 yards per carry. Atlanta struggled especially after losing defensive tackle Corey Peters to a first-half Achilles injury. 

The Falcons DST forced no turnovers but got sacks from Peters, linebacker Stephen Nicholas and defensive end Jonathan Massaquoi.

San Francisco scored on four consecutive drives to start the second half and finished with 379 total yards. The injury-depleted Falcons DST wraps up the season vs. Carolina.
