The Atlanta Falcons, who were playing well, didn’t show up during a 12-point loss to the Browns in Cleveland on Sunday.  Falcons linebacker De’Vondre Campbell knows why they lost.

Campbell told the media after Sunday’s loss that the team didn’t bring enough energy, because the Falcons didn’t take the Browns serious.  

It’s one thing to do that, it’s another to admit it immediately after the game.  With the Saints and Panthers on top of the NFC South, the loss might have knocked the Falcons out of playoff contention.  

They probably won’t be taking another opponent lightly.  If they do, they shouldn’t admit it.
