Quinn Tells Falcons to Move on After Narrow Loss at Seattle
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — Coach Dan Quinn says there's no reason for the Atlanta Falcons to worry about a penalty that wasn't called late in Sunday's narrow loss at Seattle.
Cornerback Richard Sherman pulled down Julio Jones' right arm as the All-Pro receiver tried to catch a long pass over the middle and set up a potential game-winning field goal in the final 2 minutes.
But other than asking the NFL to look at the play and blame an official, there's nothing left for Quinn and the Falcons to do.
Quinn says he told the team he doesn't believe the loss came down to one play.
When Atlanta (4-2) returns Wednesday to prepare for this week's home game against San Diego (2-4), Quinn will focus instead on improving quarterback Matt Ryan's pass protection, creating more turnovers and sacks and helping cornerback Robert Alford avoid pass interference calls.
