The Morning Sports News: 'Two Player Of The Month Awards'

The Falcons are getting prepared for the Panthers on Sunday as they take on their division rival who is 1-2 at 1pm Sunday in the Georgia Dome. Matt Ryan was named the NFC Offensive player of the month, while Rookie LB Deion Jones was named the Defensive rookie of the month. Hugh said "That's a heck of a way to start your rookie campaign, and that's what you want from a young rookie defensive player is to set himself apart from others as a play-maker."

The comeback victories continue for the Braves who got four runs in the eighth Thursday night to beat Philadelphia 5-2.  It's their tenth win in 11 games,  Freddie Freeman's 30 game hit streak was ended.  Tonight the final series in Turner Field history starts as Matt Wisler goes against the Tigers.
