Dan Quinn had a sleepless night Sunday, but it wasn't the result of his controversial fourth-and-1 gamble that failed.
Falcons running back Tevin Coleman is likely to miss some time after injuring his hamstring Sunday against the Chargers, according to a source.
Falcons, Rams unluckiest teams of late
With Sunday's defeat to the Chargers, the Falcons have lost their last six games that were decided by three points or fewer. The Rams have lost four such games in a row, while the Bills and Panthers have each lost three straight.

Falcons left tackle tackle Jake Matthews looking forward to facing cousin Clay Matthews on Sunday at the Georgia Dome. "I'm excited," Matthews said. "It's a pretty surreal experience. Playing against family, you're playing against your blood, especially the positions we play. We're 1 on 1 against each other for most of the game." The two last faced off during Jake's rookie season.
Alex Mack has been as good as advertised
Mike Sando pegged Mack as the league's best free-agent signing, and that's proven to be true so far. Mack's steadiness at the pivot has turned Atlanta's offense into the league's best. Revisiting predictions (Insider)
Matt Ryan said it was "nice" to surpass Dan Fouts' mark for most consecutive 200-yard passing days, but losing the game meant more to him.
Two losses in a row have memories of 2015 -- where the Falcons started 5-0 only to finish 8-8 and miss the playoffs -- resurfacing a bit.
Dan Quinn's decision to go for it on fourth-and-1 in overtime was unconventional, but as a calculated risk the decision itself is defensible.
The Falcons' overtime defeat against the Chargers was about more than failing on fourth-and-1. Their defense was the downfall, and it needs addressing.
Falcons coach Dan Quinn defended his playcalling on fourth-and-1 in overtime that ultimately set up San Diego's game-winning field goal. "I had a real belief we were going to make it," he said.
Josh Lambo's 42-yard field goal in overtime gave San Diego its first road win of the year as the Chargers rallied from a 17-point deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons 33-30 on Sunday.

Chargers rallied from a 10-point deficit to force overtime and then beat Falcons 33-30. The ViewFromVegas is they did it as 6.5-point road underdogs and +190 on the money line. The game had already gone over the high total of 53.5 with 5:59 left in regulation.

The Falcons have now allowed at least 26 points in six of their seven games this season. They entered the day ranked No. 27 in scoring defense and as a result they haven't been able to put away the Chargers in this game. It's 30-27 with just under five minutes remaining.

Melvin Gordon scored his third touchdown of the day on a blown coverage from the Falcons in the deep red zone. Quick throw to the flat from Phillip Rivers. But that shouldn't happen given Gordon's pre-snap alignment. When the RB moves to a wider alignment in the backfield (on the outside leg of the tackle), it should be an automatic alert to the flat route. Chargers are now down 30-27 in the fourth quarter.
