The touchdowns from Kyle Pitts and Hayden Hirst gave them a 20-3 lead, the Falcons controlled the situation at the end of halftime.
At the start of the second half, Ty Johnson entered the penalty area, giving the Jets hope, they were three points behind in a two-point conversion after Michael Carter made a touchdown.
After the pandemic forced the cancellation of last season’s international series, most of the 60,589 rowdy crowds liked the NFL’s return to London, hoping to score goals to push the game into extra time.
But Mike Davis ran for Atlanta’s third touchdown that day to make sure the Falcons didn’t add another opportunity to lose a big lead, and this season the record improved to 2-3.
This also allows rookie Pitts to celebrate a milestone in his early career. With the Falcons missing the first two receivers, Pitts and Cordarrelle Patterson had to bear the brunt of the offense.
When Atlanta selected him as the fourth overall pick, Pitts became the most drafted close-end in NFL London history. He stepped forward and won his first NFL touchdown.
The 21-year-old was named the star player of the game after finishing a game-high 119 yards with 9 catches. The Jets quarterback Zach Wilson, the second overall pick, was in his position. The team failed to play well when it fell to 1-4.
Atlanta coach Arthur Smith said: “Played few important matches for us, Kyle won his one-on-one games. Improvement everyone wants to be popular after the first week but you have to see continuous. We love the player he becomes that’s why Kyle is here.”
Atlanta Falcons Matt Ryan veteran quarterback added: “I’ve communicated Kyle I’m honored of him. I think he’s going to have a lot of this [achievement] going forward. He could be the best player in this NFL London 2021 games league.
“He has done a good job and focused his attention and there is a lot of noise, that whether positive or negative, which will distract you, but as a young man.”
