Antonio Dixon Getting Praise

Defensive tackle Antonio Dixon, making his first career start, also won praise for his play against the Falcons' vaunted running game.

"Dixon really stepped up and solidified some things," Reid said.

It was a second straight solid performance by Dixon in place of Brodrick Bunkley. He and Cole dropped Turner for a 4-yard loss in the third. Dixon did a good job on a 3rd-and-2 in the first. And he tackled Turner after a gain of 4 in the second. Good hustle by Dixon to chase Jason Snelling down after a 7-yard reception in the first. He played just under 47 percent of the snaps.
