Atlanta Falcons undrafted rookie Jared Bernard eyes preseason

Atlanta Falcons rookie quarterback Desmond Ridder returned to pass on the 4th and 9th by three with just 90 seconds remaining.

Faced with near-instantaneous pressure, Ryder escaped the pocket, rolled right, and threw a jump ball to rookie receiver Jared Bernhardt.

At 6-1 and 195 pounds, Bernhard wasn’t the most obvious candidate for a 50/50 ball, but he was Ridder’s only option. With the game on the line and the ball in the air, Bernhard let his instincts take over, returning to the Ridder pass and pulling a go-ahead touchdown to finally prove the difference.
