WATCH: Robert Alford’s pick-six sends the Falcons to 5-0
When the Atlanta Falcons saw Devonta Freeman score a go-ahead touchdown with just 24 seconds remaining on the clock, it seemed that Atlanta had done it again. They were poised to go to 5-0 and sit alone at the top of the NFC South, thanks to the Carolina Panthers being on a bye week.
Unfortunately, they couldn’t stop the Washington Redskins on the following drive, as Kirk Cousins got his team into field goal range to tie it up and send it to overtime. To make things even worse, the Redskins got the ball to start overtime.
Then, Robert Alford happened, as you can see below from the NFL’s official Twitter.

That’s a walk-off, folks. Doesn’t get much prettier than that.
