The Atlanta Falcons truly seem to enjoy keeping their fans on the edge of their seats. Despite Sunday’s 27-25 win over the division-rival New Orleans Saints, the Falcons blew an 18-point lead and needed a Younghoe Koo field goal as time expired to avoid a disastrous collapse.

Koo and running back Cordarrelle Patterson did what they’ve done all season and came up with clutch plays down the stretch, which Atlanta could not have won without. Following the game, Patterson joked about how the team enjoyed giving fans a heart attack, per Falcons reporter Tori McElhaney.

Patterson said his phone was blowing up with texts from his friends and family after a roller-coaster afternoon. While the Falcons’ superstar free-agent acquisition was all smiles, he also made it clear how serious the team took this game.

Patterson’s 64-yard reception with under a minute remaining set up the Falcons’ game-winning field goal. He was again the team’s best offensive weapon with 126 receiving yards on six catches.
