Coach Dan Quinn feels fortunate that his Falcons are 3-0

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Falcons coach Dan Quinn isn't fond of putting games in the hands of officials.

He would prefer to have the outcome already decided as the fourth quarter winds down.

A confluence of interceptions and penalties kept that from happening Sunday at Detroit. The Falcons eked out a 30-26 victory after video review showed cornerback Brian Poole touching Golden Tate as the receiver's knee went down just shy of the goal line .
