4. Offensive Line
The Falcons offensive line played well again this week. Matt Ryan was only sacked twice and had a clean pocket for most of the evening. The running back duo also compiled a ridiculous 194 yards on 26 carries. That’s good for an average of 7.46 yards per carry, which is amazing. Now I know the Saints were without a lot of key defensive players tonight, but the line still played a great game.
Continually, they have created running lanes and kept Ryan upright. This unit a year ago was a liability, it has now turned into a strength. The addition of center Alex Mack has already proven to be one of Thomas Dimitroff’s best offseason signings.
