“Losing like that is never going to be acceptable,” O’Brien said. “It’s my responsibility to make sure that never happens again. I’m going to do everything I can to make sure we improve. We have to make an honest assessment. I have to coach better.

“We have to cut down on turnovers, catch the ball better, tackle better, eliminate penalties. Those are some of the things we have to improve on. I know many players took responsibility and I appreciate that.”Ryan Mallett played on nine series and failed to generate a point. He threw an interception the Falcons turned into a touchdown. Brian Hoyer entered down 42-0 and led three touchdown drives."
