Offensively, Matt Ryan has to limit the number of turnovers he has in 2020. By no means am I blaming him for the sheer amount of turnovers over the last couple of years. In 2019, the Atlanta Falcons as a team had 25 turnovers – 15 interceptions and 10 fumbles.
There are a lot of reasons for quarterback interceptions – miscommunication, pressure, wrong route running, wrong read, and the list continues. Some of this is on Matt Ryan and some of it is on the players around him.
Regardless of whose fault it is, the offense has to take care of the ball in 2020. They found success in 2016 because they turned the ball over just 11 times. They have to return to that level of ball security as good things happen when you limit the number of possessions you give your opponents.
Defensively, they have to become a ball-hawking defense. Giving this talented offense additional possessions is how you win games.
In 2016, the Atlanta Falcons were (+11) in takeaways, which was third-best in the NFL. In 2020, they were (-5) in turnovers which were among the worst in the league.
A better scheme from Raheem Morris and a higher level of execution from the Falcons defense will be one of the biggest reasons that they can win the Super Bowl in 2020.
