Brittain’s 80-yard pass to David Cormier in the second quarter was the Falcons’ only completed pass of the game. It was backup QB Brittain’s first and only pass attempt since the 2020 season.
For Roberts, it was the second time in three games that he scored three rushing touchdowns, which is his career high. He also scored three times in a 41-10 win over Colorado two weeks ago.
