Falcons rookie WR Ridley riddles Saints for 3 TDs in loss

ATLANTA (AP) Calvin Ridley set a Falcons rookie record with three touchdown receptions among a bunch of big plays - in a bittersweet afternoon for the young wide receiver.

After barely factoring in Atlanta's first two games, he was targeted a team-high eight times, caught a team-best seven passes and registered a game-high 146 yards. It wasn't enough, though, because Drew Brees's half-yard sneak pushed the New Orleans Saints to a 43-37 overtime victory Sunday.

That left the first-round draft choice less happy to talk about his scoring plays of 18, 75 and 9 yards.
