Falcons Lose 5th Straight, Calls For A Coaching Change Intensify
The Atlanta Falcons' losing streak now stands at five games after Sunday's 37-10 defeat against the L.A. Rams.
Quarterback Matt Ryan was injured in the fourth quarter and running back Devonte Freeman was ejected after throwing a punch at an opposing player.
Both those incidents, combined with the final score, add up to another dreadful weekend for the Falcon’s organization.
Calls for Head Coach Dan Quinn to be fired intensified on social media over the weekend, from both NFL analysts and fans.

Arthur Blank kept Dan Quinn employed until now out of respect for going to the Super Bowl once upon a time. But it’s over. It’s all over. The locker room has quit on this season and its head coach.— Damon Amendolara (@DAonCBS) October 20, 2019
If Arthur Blank doesn’t fire Dan Quinn by 8:00 pm tonight, I’m gonna vandalize a Home Depot— J. WhiTe (@CoolestMofunka) October 20, 2019
Quinn, who has led the team since 2015, signed a three-year contract extension last year.
According to The Athletic, owner Arthur Blank said he still supports Quinn and isn't planning a coaching change just yet.
Atlanta will have another tough test on Sunday when Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks come to Mercedes Benz Stadium.
