Falcons | Players-only rally helps team to even their record

The Associated Press reports the Atlanta Falcons won 24-14 over the Washington Redskins Week 13, giving the team a 6-6 record and back into the hunt for a playoff berth. S Lawyer Milloy, who called for a players-only meeting Saturday, Dec. 2, said, "We definitely needed that pep rally last night. We probably should have had it a couple of weeks ago, but it's not too late. We're just blessed that the league is so equal competitively that we still have a shot. It was at a point where the players of this team, the leaders of this team, needed to take some ownership. The coaches can't catch the ball for you. The coaches can't tell you to stay deep when you have a deep zone. That was the premise of the conversation."
