Falcons vs. Jags: News and Notes

Posted Aug 25, 2005

JACKSONVILLE - News and notes from Atlanta's win over the Jags.

With Webster and Mathis out and Rossum starting at cornerback, Jonte' Buhl played in nickel schemes. The undrafted rookie from Texas A&M gave up Wilford's 12-yard catch late in the second quarter, but Josh Scobee missed a 38-yard field-goal attempt to end the drive. ...

The teams combined for 10 first-half penalties, though Jacksonville gave up 109 yards to Atlanta's 40. ...

Michael Jenkins caught two first-half touchdowns, but his failure to catch a high pass from Matt Schaub resulted in Deke Cooper's interception for the Jags. ...

Undrafted rookie Cole Magner fumbled away a punt return in the third quarter.

BIG HITS: Rookie linebacker Michael Boley was too fast and strong for Mike Pearson as he powered past the outside of the left tackle and sacked Leftwich for a 10-yard loss late in the second.

Boley, a fifth-round pick from Southern Mississippi, knocked the ball loose as he hit Leftwich from behind. Rookie tackle Jonathan Babineaux, a second-round pick from Iowa, recovered the loose ball at the Atlanta 28.

Reese had a team-high five tackles at halftime.
