The Atlanta Falcons defense was too much for the Dallas Cowboys offense, which was missing running back Ezekiel Elliott for the first time this season. Another key absence was left tackle Tyron Smith, who was out with an injury.

Here’s a look at the top performances in the Falcons’ 27-7 drubbing of the Cowboys:

Falcons defensive end Adrian Clayborn had a career-high six sacks, which is the most for any player in a game this season and sets the club record. The Falcons had eight sacks total.

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan completed 22 of 29 passes for 215 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

Falcons running back Tevin Coleman rushed for 82 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries.

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten led all receivers with seven catches for 57 yards.

Cowboys fans discuss their thoughts on Ezekiel Elliott's ongoing legal saga, before heading inside to watch #21 step on the field to play Kansas City. Will they see him play this week? Only time will tell.
