NFC South Notes: Falcons, Panthers, Saints



Falcons HC Dan Quinn said after Sunday’s close loss to the Bengals that their record doesn’t reflect how good of a team they are.

“At the end of the day, we have to get these moments right,” Quinn said, via “Through our first quarter of the season, our record doesn’t show that we have that part down, so we’ve got work to do. We’re a good team and our record doesn’t show it at this point.”
