ATLANTA – Roddy White’s perfect season ended Thursday night, moments before he made perhaps his biggest play of the year.
White entered the game with Baltimore as one of only a handful of receivers who had not dropped a pass this season. But White dropped two very catchable passes in the final three minutes, 23 seconds of the victory. He bounced back, though, and caught the game-winning touchdown with 20 seconds remaining.
That leaves Jason Witten, Eddie Royal and Lance Moore as the only players who have been targeted at least 50 times and have not dropped a pass. White’s two drops leave him at fifth in the league, one spot behind Larry Fitzgerald, who has one drop.
White also was more of a downfield threat against Baltimore than he had been earlier in the season. White had five receptions 15 yards or more downfield. He had been averaging only two such receptions per game through the first eight games.
