Check out these top photos from the Washington Redskins' 2015 Week 5 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons Oct. 11, 2015, at the Georgia Dome.

-- CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler reports on Sunday's Redskins-Falcons game in Atlanta, where, for the first time since at least 1994, the Redskins drove at least 40 yards for a game-tying score in the final 30 seconds of a game, plus other news and notes.

-- Tandler isn't too concerned about the only injury to occur to a member of the Redskins on Sunday -- a sprained toe for rookie running back Matt Jones.

-- Sunday's game in Atlanta featured an opposite effect of the previous four games: the Redskins, the league's leading rushing team, couldn't muster much on the ground, while the Falcons found much success running the ball against one of the league's top rushing defenses, Tandler reports.

-- Tandler also analyzes what happened on the game's final play, a pick-six returned for a touchdown by the Falcons in overtime.

-- The Washington Times' Anthony Gulizia gives his three keys from the Redskins' overtime loss to the Falcons on Sunday.

-- Zac Boyer of The Washington Times says a banged-up Redskins secondary gave the Redskins a chance on Sunday by controlling Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and the Falcons' high-powered passing game.

-- ESPN staff writer John Keim reports on the Redskins-Falcons game, where he says the Redskins claim they're a different team, but now it's time for them to show it on the field.

-- Keim writes on Sunday's performance by Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, who says there's "nowhere to point but myself" for the loss.

-- The Washington Post's Jerry Brewer looks deeper into Cousins' performance on Sunday, in which he was "great in crunch time, and then he wasn't."

-- In defeat, the Redskins' defense proved it can make almost any game competitive on Sunday, The Washington Post's Master Tesfatsion writes.

-- The Redskins are developing grit at game's end, but just aren't completely there yet, writes Mike Jones of The Washington Post.

-- Scott Allen of The Washington Post says Redskins' defensive coordinator Joe Barry is "every bit as fun to watch as his defense."
