The Seattle Seahawks moved to 9-1 on the season with their 33-10 victory at the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday – the best record in the NFC – and 2.5 games up of the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC West.

Falcons’ quarterback Matt Ryan didn’t do much – he wasn’t “horrible” numbers-wise – going 23-of-36 for 172 yards and a touchdown.

Atlanta’s running game was limited to just 64 yards on 16 carries against a Seahawks rush defense that ranks 20th in the NFL at 116.2 yards per game.

“When they put one extra guy in box, they are daring you to throw the ball,” Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez said, according to Michael Cunningham of the Seattle Times. “We went to the pass but that wasn’t working, either. It was just one of those days. They played well. Give them credit.”

Gonzalez was notably frustrated with the Falcons’ performance – understandably as Atlanta moved to 2-7 on the season after the loss.

“We struggled,” Gonzalez said, who caught 3 passes for 29 yards in the game. “I don’t even know what to say. I don’t know what you want me to say. We had plays called up, plays we thought were going to be successful. They didn’t work. What am I supposed to say?”
