Quinn getting message of starting fast through to Falcons

Posted: Updated:

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Coach Dan Quinn has been trying to get the Atlanta Falcons to start games fast.
    
His message seems to be taking effect.
    
In Sunday's blowout win over Houston, the Falcons did as he instructed, avoiding a sluggish first half by taking care of the ball on offense and taking it away on defense.
    
Not surprisingly, Quinn's halftime talk to the team was nothing like last week's when Atlanta trailed by 11 at Dallas.
    
This time, the Falcons were up 28-0 and turnovers - no miscues by the offense, an interception by Jonathan Babineaux and two fumble recoveries by Desmond Trufant - were the reason why.
    
It was all the proof Quinn needed heading into this week as the Falcons (4-0) host Washington (2-2).
