1. Keep The Flow Going
The offensive flow for the Falcons has been very impressive throughout this season. They have shown on different occasions that they are able spread the ball around consistently and win games without massive outings from Jones, Coleman, or running back Devonta Freeman. Their victory over the Oakland Raiders saw production from the tight ends in Jacob Tamme and rookie Austin Hooper. Beating division rival Carolina saw a Herculean effort from Jones. This past Sunday against Green Bay, it was Mohamed Sanu’s turn to step to the plate and make plays.
Although Jones may not be 100% healthy in this one, the status of Coleman is iffy due to a hamstring injury, and Tamme being ruled out due to a shoulder injury, the Falcons still have enough weapons to keep the Buccaneers defense off-balanced. The game plan shouldn’t change at all. The run game should power through Freeman and backup Terron Ward and expect for Shanahan to have speedy receivers Taylor Gabriel and Aldrick Robinson take the top off a mediocre Buccaneers secondary. Don’t alter or interrupt what is working. Staying consistent with this game plan bodes well for the high-flying Falcons.
