3 underrated Atlanta Falcons from week four loss to Washington
Week four was a familiar feeling for the Atlanta Falcons and their fans, the team losing a game they had no business losing. Whether it is the coaching, situational awareness, missed interceptions, Mike Davis being Mike Davis, or timeout usage the list of reasons and frustrations was long.
Atlanta had this game locked up and for a myriad of reasons found a way to lose yet again. Matt Ryan played a great game tossing four touchdowns and finally stretched the field throwing the ball deep on multiple occasions.
His performance was muddied, however, by the fact he had a chance to win the game on third down and chose to check it down to Mike Davis. Davis never had a chance to make it to the first down line despite a valiant effort, Atlanta would have been better served to go for it than punt and allow the inevitable to happen.
The Atlanta Falcons have no shortage of things to improve on in week five
Checking the ball down on occasion is the right call, however, when it is your consistent offensive strategy you aren’t going to find much success.
Sitting at 1-3 it is hard to find a lot to love about this team aside from Cordarrelle Patterson. There were three players who quietly had good days for the struggling Falcons.
