Jaguars Vs. Falcons Score Update: Atlanta Adds Two More Touchdowns, Leads 41-0 In Third Quarter

The Atlanta Falcons are crushing the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday Night Football, quickly adding to their 27 point halftime lead with a defensive touchdown on the Jags first possession. Corey Peters returned a Blaine Gabbert fumble 13 yards to make it an embarrassing 34-0 rout.

The Jags offense has been woeful all night and Gabbert has been under heavy pressure. John Abraham has wreaked the most havoc, and he was the Falcon who hit Gabbert and forced the fumble as the Jaguars rookie QB did little to protect the ball as the pressure came from his left side. It was Gabbert's second lost fumble of the night. Video of the play below:

Just six minutes later, Matt Ryan would hit his third touchdown of the evening to extend the lead to 41-0. Roddy White caught the 29 yard pass from Ryan, and scampered in for his second of the night. Ryan has 217 yards so far and has gashed the depleted Jacksonville secondary.
