Atlanta's Mike Nolan still trying to solve Manning

By  | 

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) -- As a defensive coordinator and head coach, Mike Nolan has just one victory in seven tries against quarterback Peyton Manning.

Nolan, in his first season as coordinator of the Atlanta Falcons, hopes to change his luck when Manning and the Denver Broncos visit the Georgia Dome on Monday night.

Manning returned from a 20-month layoff following neck surgery to lead the Broncos to four scoring drives in a season-opening win over Pittsburgh last week.

The Falcons are coming off a 16-point victory at Kansas City in which their defense struggled in the first half, but forced three turnovers and held the Chiefs scoreless in the second half until the game's final possession.
