FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - When the Atlanta Falcons gather in the meeting room at the beginning of each week, they can always count on coach Mike Smith putting one thing on the board.
Turnover margin.
Smith has made that a priority during his five years as coach, and the Falcons are sure following his lead this season. Atlanta is 5-0 for the first time in franchise history and has a plus-10 edge in turnovers, tied with the New England Patriots for the best mark in the league.
The safeties are leading the way. Thomas DeCoud has four interceptions, while William Moore has chipped in with two picks. Both give credit to new defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, saying he has done a good job of disguising coverages and allowing everyone to play to their strengths.
