What is the Falcons’ winning formula?

How often do the Falcons win when they throw for fewer than 200 yards and rush for 150 or less? During Dan Quinn’s tenure, not very often. 

What if the defense holds a team to 55 yards or less rushing? They’re 7-0 in that circumstance.

Both those metrics were in play against the Saints Sunday in New Orleans. That’s the winning formula the 2-7 Falcons hope to replicate the rest of the 2019 season.
