Jim Mora on Sirius NFL Radio

Atlanta head coach Jim Mora was on Sirius NFL Radio's The Red Zone this week talking about his team's rough start last week against Dallas, his take on the Terrell Owens spitting incident, and getting ready for the Carolina Panthers this weekend.

Atlanta head coach Jim Mora was disappointed after his team's 38-28 loss to Dallas a week ago, but he was proud of the way his team fought back.

"We just didn't have enough to get it done at the end," he said during his interview on Sirius NFL Radio.

"We played them tough and stopped the run. And then down the stretch, when it counted, they made some plays on us and I think you have to give them some credit for doing that. Tony Romo did a nice job and he got rid of the ball quickly."

The Falcons are 7-7 with two games remaining, tied with the Giants for the second wildcard spot heading into this weekend's action. Atlanta doesn't have much margin for error with five teams right behind them at 6-8.

"It would be nice to be running away with it, without a doubt" Mora said. "But I think we were all prepared all year for this to be a barnburner down to the end -- and it is. So we're just going to do our best and see if we can't make something good happen here."

The Falcons take on the Panthers this weekend, and when asked about Carolina's disappointing season, Mora stated, "It's like a lot of teams in this league. You suffer some key injuries at some key positions and you lose a little bit of your momentum -- it's tough. There's a lot of parity in this league and this is a tough division and they had a tough schedule..."
