3. Koetter not happy, either: Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter was not happy with the offense's three turnovers. "You can't turn it over in any game, especially on the road," Koetter said. He did note that the Falcons were on Minnesota's side of the 50-yard line on 7 of 10 offensive possessions.
4. Lindstrom to IR: The Falcons knew that Chris Lindstrom had suffered a fifth metatarsal fracture on Sunday night and knew he was going on injured reserved, according to parties close to Lindstrom. However, the Falcons didn't let the fans know until Quinn's press conference on Monday afternoon. They were already talking to parties about Lindstrom going on IR with the possibility of returning and were comparing the situation to Deion Jones (broken foot) last season when he got injured in the opener and returned to play in the final five games. Jamon Brown will move into the starting lineup and tackle-guard John Wetzel was signed to the 53-man roster.
