Improved offensive line…

As far as the offensive line goes, everything is going according to plan. According to the Falcons’ pass blocking ranks eighth best in the NFL with a 3.7 adjusted sack rate.  The Falcons’ offensive line has given up just three sacks good enough for more than 2 points under the league average in adjusted sack ratings.

The run-blocking still needs some work, but this unit is still growing together. The current starting five has played only two games together and has done a nice job at time at creating running lanes, but there will always be room for improvement.
