In the 210th episode of The Bow Tie Chronicles podcast, we hear from coach Dan Quinn and defensive tackle Grady Jarrett after the 38-25 season-opening loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The Falcons tried to be bold, but misfired. When the Seahawks tried to be bold on fourth-and-five, they struck gold on a 38-yard game-changing touchdown pass play.
