The two teams combined for 27 points in the final 15 minutes, including Tevin Coleman's 30-yard touchdown run to pull Atlanta ahead for good. They also finished tied at 423 yards-apiece, as the Giants' had a late run fall just short. Saquon Barkley scored from two yards out, and Eli Manning found Odell Beckham Jr. for a quick touchdown with five seconds left. The Giants attempted a tough squib kick, which was fielded with ease by the Falcons.
Ryan's lone touchdown pass found Marvin Hall for a 47-yard touchdown to open the scoring in the first quarter, helping Atlanta hand New York its fourth straight loss. He completed his final 18 pass attempts on the night, but his team remains in last place in the NFC South, one game under .500 at 3-4. Kicker Matt Bryant also left a mark on this day, making all three of his field goal attempts, including one from 56 yards out in second quarter, which was the longest of his career.
Manning continued to struggle, as his Giants dropped to 1-6 on the season. The veteran completed 27 of his 38 passes for 399 yards, despite getting sacked four times. Beckham recorded eight catches for 143 yards and his one score, while Sterling Shepard added five receptions for 167 yards.
The Falcons will look to get back to .500 after a bye week when they visit the Washington Redskins. Meanwhile, the struggling Giants will play host to that same first-place Redskins team next week.
