5 of 5

1) Efficient offense

There is no question that the Falcons have an efficient offense. The Falcons have an outstanding receiving corps and a top-10 quarterback to throw the ball to them. The combination of Matt Ryan and Julio Jones is one of the leagues best, if not the absolute best.

Jones was on fire to start the year. Jones burnt Eagles’ cornerback Byron Maxwell all game long en route to a 141 yard game on nine receptions and two touchdowns. Ryan on the other hand completed 23 of 34 for 298 yards and two touchdowns.

If the Falcons are able to keep this up, they will be able to shred defenses all year long. It is the Falcons’ division to lose in 2015 and are an elite team by every facet of the imagination.
