ATLANTA — Roddy White hauled in a 33-yard touchdown pass from Matt Ryan with 20 seconds remaining and the Atlanta Falcons, after squandering a 13-point lead in the fourth quarter, rallied to beat the Baltimore Ravens 26-21 on Thursday night.

The Falcons (7-2) were up 20-7 after Ryan went to White on a 4-yard touchdown with 11:34 remaining. Baltimore (6-3) rallied behind Joe Flacco's two TD passes, the second a 9-yarder to Todd Heap with 1:05 left.

Back came the Falcons, who improved to 18-1 at home with Ryan as the starter. He needed less than a minute to pull off an 80-yard drive, hooking up with Michael Jenkins on a huge third-down pass along the sideline before going back to his favorite receiver for the winner.

White appeared to push off on Josh Wilson, but there was no flag, and he cruised into the end zone with no one around.
