Falcons miss opportunity to stay close in NFC wild-card hunt

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) The Atlanta Falcons picked a bad time to play their second-worst game of the year.

Losing by two touchdowns at Cleveland cost the Falcons (4-5) a chance to move one-half game back in the NFC wild-card race. They enter this week's home game against Dallas (4-5) two games behind Carolina for the final playoff spot.

Atlanta looked out of sync most of the day. Only in Week 5 in a blowout loss at Pittsburgh did the Falcons play worse, but quarterback Matt Ryan isn't terribly concerned.
