Calvin Ridley Sets Franchise Record
In a game in which Drew Brees set the NFL record for completions in a career (6,301), Falcons’ rookie receiver Calvin Ridley was breaking records of his own.
The first round pick out if Alabama become the first rookie in Atlanta Falcons history to catch three touchdowns in a game. The phenom did it in about two in a half quarters, so there could be more to come for Brees and Ridley.
