28-3 redux? NFL Twitter reacts to Falcons' latest huge collapse

Patriots

Patriots fans biding their time before New England's Week 2 clash with the Seattle Seahawks may have witnessed a familiar sight Sunday.

The Atlanta Falcons opened up a 20-0 lead on the Dallas Cowboys in the first quarter, led by 19 points at halftime and looked like they were cruising to a Week 2 win.

Then disaster struck: Dallas stormed back to pull within two points with under two minutes to play, then miraculously recovered an onside kick to set up a game-winning field goal that capped a stunning 39-37 Cowboys win.

The Falcons blowing a massive second-half lead -- hmm, where have we seen that before?

This loss wasn't as bad as Atlanta blowing a 28-3 lead to the Patriots in Super Bowl LI. But it was darn close, and the Falcons' latest epic collapse had NFL Twitter in a frenzy.

Take it away, internet peanut gallery:

Damian Lillard might want to direct his answer to Falcons head coach Dan Quinn, who has overseen both of Atlanta's massive chokes.
