2) If you give the ball to Devonta Freeman, he will do good things

Devonta Freeman is special, that’s all there is too it. side-line reporter and former NFL player Tony Siragusa said that he hasn’t seen a running back with the cutting ability and great vision that Freeman has since Barry Sanders was shredding defenses back in the day.

Freeman carried the ball 25 times for 116 yards and caught two passes for 16 yards as well. Freeman didn’t score a touchdown, but his presence was definitely felt. Why the Falcons didn’t give the ball to freeman more often on third down is beyond me, but it is what it is. We won.
