|Falcons Overpower Rams 34-17
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Matt Ryan threw two touchdown passes and directed an offense so dominant that three St. Louis defenders left with cramps in the Atlanta Falcons' 34-17 victory over the Rams on Sunday.
Sam Bradford also had a pair of touchdown passes and set an NFL rookie record with 169 consecutive passes without an interception before William Moore picked off a shovel pass at the 2 with 3:24 to go. That was the clincher for the Falcons (8-2), who won their fourth in a row and ended the Rams' four-game home winning streak.
Ryan was 26 of 39 for 253 yards with touchdown passes to Brian Finneran and Justin Peelle, and Roddy White set up scores with nine catches for 83 yards.
The Rams fell to 4-6.
