Falcons Justin Hardy Scores Touchdown On Crazy Deflection

Ryan Phillips

Justin Hardy is always going to remember his first NFL touchdown, and so will a whole lot of Atlanta Falcons fans.

Hardy was the beneficiary of being in the right place at the right time on Sunday. Tied at 21 with the Oakland Raiders, Matt Ryan fired a pass to running back Tevin Coleman, which was deflected into the air. Luckily for Ryan, it fell right until Hardy’s hands for a touchdown.

Nice job kid.

The score gave the Falcons a 28-21 lead.
