Atlanta Falcons: 3 players who saw their stock rise in Week 8
By Randy Gurzi
The Atlanta Falcons moved to 4-3 with a gritty win in nasty weather against the New York Jets in Week 8. Here are 3 players who saw their stock improve.
For one week at least, the sky isn’t falling for the Atlanta Falcons. They got a hard-fought 25-20 win over the New York Jets, in yet another terrible weather game.
In Week 7 they had to deal with a heavy fog that limited the visibility so much that NBC had to limit what cameras they could use. That one ended up being a terrible loss to the New England Patriots — their third-straight to an AFC East rival. Then they headed to East Rutherford, New Jersey where heavy rains affected their game against the Jets.
The Falcons have to be thrilled about heading back to the south, even though their next game still isn’t a home game, they have to believe the weather in Charlotte will be more pleasing than they felt up north.
Despite the conditions, the Falcons toughed it out, and found a way to win a game despite trailing for the majority of it. There were several players responsible for the victory, but here we narrow it down to three guys who increased their personal stock in the win over New York that moved them to 4-3 on the year.
