Watch: Marcus Mariota, Arthur Smith on Falcons’ Week 8 win

The Atlanta Falcons (4-4) sit atop the NFC South following Sunday’s 37-34 win over the Carolina Panthers (2-6). It was a back-and-forth game that the Falcons appeared on the verge of losing multiple times.

Ultimately, the team did enough to win its fourth game of the season, even if it was the result of a few lucky breaks down the stretch. “Our guys didn’t blink,” said Falcons QB Marcus Mariota, who turned 29 years old on Sunday.

Mariota and head coach Arthur Smith addressed the media at their postgame press conferences. Watch both below, along with the top highlights from Sunday’s game.
