3 of 5

3) Ryan, Shanahan make poor decisions

Like explained before, the Falcons’ offense made a lot of poor decisions against the Titans. Arguably the worst call of the day was to throw the ball on fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line, a play that resulted in an interception. While it didn’t cost the Falcons the game, it was a play that had everyone extremely upset.

The Falcons came into the game leading the NFL in fourth down conversions but failed twice on fourth down against the Titans. The biggest question is, why the Falcons didn’t run the ball more with arguably the best running back in the NFL lined up behind Ryan.

Teams are going to make bad decisions. That’s apart of the game. Most importantly, the Falcons won so all is forgiven.
