This game started ugly for the Rams and has only gotten worse.
Linebacker Deion Jones dropped into coverage, intercepted Jared Goff and returned it 33 yards for a touchdown.
The Falcons lead, 21-0, with 8:54 to play in the first half.
Goff has completed six of 13 passes for 58 yards, with two interceptions. The first interception was hardly his fault as it bounced off Kenny Britt's hands, but the second was all on the rookie quarterback.
