Halftime thoughts: Falcons-Giants

ATLANTA -- I don’t know that it will last, but the Atlanta Falcons finally are looking like the team they’re supposed to be.

At halftime, they have a 17-0 lead on the New York Giants. The score doesn’t even illustrate how well the Falcons have played.

They’ve been criticized all season for not being able to put together a complete game. Well, they’re doing it against the Giants.

They’ve had success with the run and the pass on offense. Defensively, they’ve picked off Eli Manning twice and they stopped a New York drive near the end of the first half.

Atlanta’s been dominant so far. We’ll see if it continues. I’ll be back with Rapid Reaction soon after the game ends.
