The Atlanta Falcons can consider themselves one of the luckiest teams in the world after a particular slice of good fortune.
That is after the Falcons offense managed to score one of the flukiest touchdowns we have ever seen on Sunday night.
With the game tied at 21 apiece, Matt Ryan fired a pass into Tevin Coleman with the Falcons in the redzone looking for the score to put them in the lead. No one would have predicted what happened next. Scroll down to see the play.

Yep, what you see there is exactly what happened. The ball somehow managed to collide at some serious speed and bounce about 10 metres into the air, before dropping perfectly into the hands of your wide receiver.
One can safely hazard a guess to say that's definitely not how the Falcons would have originally drawn up the play, but they won't be complaining about the end result. Raiders fans must be sick at how it all played out.
The Falcons would go on to win the game 35-21 but it may well have ended completely differently had fortune not been on their side in that one fateful play.
