Week 1 What happened in Falcons home win over Panthers

After an 8-yard pick-up,
it is third down and 8.
Ritter,
it’s loose,
and recovered by Ritter.
So he caught his own batted pass.
It’s complete for a first down.
It’s 2-0-4,
the late kick for the snap count.
Miles Sanders works his way through the Atlanta defense.
Quick pass from Bryce Young to Chenault.
That LaVisca Chenault is inside the 20.
He runs,
he catches,
he does whatever they need.
And he gets the handoff,
squirms.
Chuba Hubbard,
can he find room?
No! The Falcons will take over on downs.
Getting excited,
Tyler Algiers in a running back from the Atlanta 12.
And he’s looking for room.
Thousand-yard rusher from last year,
all the way up across the 30.
Picked up 19,
stays in the game.
Algiers with room,
another big hole,
another first down.
Working his way across mid.
Ritter is going to be smothered at the 47-yard line.
The veteran on this front line,
and the pass is intercepted at the 20.
Jesse Bates with a Falcon takeaway.
He’s trying to get to that read in the middle of the field.
Bates sees it,
breaks on it,
gets in front of it,
gets a pick.
Young was trying to get the ball,
the former Falcon,
Hayden Hurst.
B.
John Robinson lined up in the slot,
going in motion here.
B.
John Robinson dancing around.
And he has the football,
puts a move on.
B.
John Robinson,
he’ll touchdown!
And that stopped touchdown.
You see B.
John Robinson right here,
catching the little bonus screen.
But the move on Frankie Louvu,
that guy is too big to move like that.
But that’s what the man.
Third and one,
they failed on a fourth and one on an impressive opening drive.
Young is protected well.
The pass is on target and held on.
Young,
first down,
Marshall to the 40.
What do you need?
What’s up?
Chuba Hubbard has a hole.
And Hubbard inside the…
Spotted right at the 20.
Bryce Young has all day and dumps it off.
That’s Hayden Hurst with running room.
Without a huddle here.
He throws,
it’s caught.
And Bryce Young has his first NFL touchdown pass to Hayden Hurst.
It’s going to be in the coverage.
You’re going to see Hayden Hurst here on the outside.
Is he going to block for the run?
Or is he going to release?
Grant,
just that little bit of step.
Just that little bit extra.
Second and 23.
Ritter protected.
In live action,
that can happen.
C.J.
Henderson is in for Horn.
And Robinson is rocked by Troy Hill.
Bryce Young’s throw,
incomplete.
Third and six,
Desmond Ritter.
Homily flips.
And that’s going to be good enough for the first down on the reception.
A bit more on that,
to move more naturally.
Meanwhile,
Falcons have a chance for more points before the half.
Ritter,
he cannot escape.
Brought down at the 25 by Derrick Brown.
He is just automatic.
It’s so much fun to watch him operate.
Sanders.
And Miles Sanders gets a first down.
Tremendous,
all day long.
Protection and in-run blocking.
Bryce Young has a moment here.
And a lot of room,
and if he keeps it.
And he does.
And he will get a first down and go out of bounds.
Inside the 35 of Atlanta.
See if he’s going to be a target here on third down.
Hayden Hurst has the most catches for Carolina today.
The throw.
The kick is up there.
It’s out there and through.
And the Panthers.
He’s on to the top of your screen.
There’s a flip to Tyler Algier.
And Algier,
run out of bounds on what was a third and ten.
And he didn’t get the first down.
Young throws.
And it’s intercepted!
It’s Jesse Bates again!
He’s got two today!
See if he’ll take a shot here.
After a run play on third down.
Young way.
The kick is through.
Hubbard with a hole.
And Chuba Hubbard’s got a first down.
And he’s still going.
Up across the 40.
Miles Sanders squirts through the middle.
And gets inside the 40.
Looks like the ball was juggled.
Oh!
It looks like that thing’s coming out.
Yeah,
but is there a clear recovery?
In a tie game now.
Tyler Algier.
With a first down!
Still a lot of Panther fans rooting for him.
Pass is caught.
He’s got a first down.
Tritter.
On the move.
And completes to Algier.
Robinson in the back on first down.
Bijan Robinson has room.
Bijan Robinson!
On the way!
Tyler Algier dives back and he turned the corner.
And he can!
Why the patience is so important on the run.
Initially Tyler Algier.
Up into the line of scrimmage.
All the defenders get drawn up.
Even after the interceptions.
He dumps it off to Miles Sanders.
Puts a move on.
The blitz is on.
Young is sacked!
Troy Anderson got to him!
Safety is awfully low.
Down a distance like this.
Ritter unloads with the pressure on.
And Bijan Robinson.
Ritter’s throw.
He hangs on.
It’s back up.
Out of time outs.
Sanders carries.
From Calais Campbell.
To David Onyemata.
And Bud Dupree.
And of course Jesse Bates.
Adds up to a victory for Arthur Smith.
His first opening Sunday win as an NFL head coach.
And this is his third season.
