After losing his first two games in an Atlanta Falcons jersey by a combined five points, Saint Louis alum Marcus Mariota finally got his elusive first victory as the team’s new quarterback in a 27-23 victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Mariota completed 13 of his 20 passes for 229 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

On the ground, Mariota also added a rushing touchdown after carrying the ball seven times for a total of four yards.

Despite fumbling twice, including on a crucial drive late in the fourth quarter, Mariota was picked up by his defense, who sealed the game on Richie Grant’s interception of Geno Smith.

After improving to 1-2, the Falcons will look to get back to the .500 mark with a home game against the Cleveland Browns next Sunday, which airs on CBS.
