It’s been an up-and-down season for the Atlanta Falcons offensively, and the bye week is the perfect time to evaluate the unit entering the most important stretch of the season.

The Atlanta Falcons started the season offensively in red hot form, flying to a 5-0 start with a sweep of the NFC East. Since then, the offense has struggled and it has resulted in three losses from the Falcons’ past four games.

At the timely bye week, now is the perfect time to evaluate the offense in detail and look ahead at each position moving into the most important stretch of the season. We will be breaking down the entire Falcons roster, and we kick off with Kyle Shanahan’s offense.

We’ll run through each position, from quarterback to the offensive line, check in on how they have been performing and their outlook moving forward for the Falcons’ playoff push. Let’s get started.
