Atlanta Falcons: 3 reasons why A.J. Terrell is best CB in the league
Falcons CB has allowed fewer yards than anyone else in the NFL this season
If you are the Atlanta Falcons, what do you want in a cornerback? Someone who will allow as few yards to the opposing receiver as possible. Well, that is exactly what Terrell has done this season.
A.J. has allowed a total of 74 yards in his vicinity during seven games, a simply stunning stat. He has not allowed even 100 yards through the air this entire season.
Meanwhile, in Dallas, their cornerback has allowed 545 yards through the air, personally, 74 yards sounds a ton better.
Now let’s compare that to Jalen Ramsey of the Los Angeles Rams. He has allowed 359 yards in his area, again 74 sounds a whole lot better.
This goes to show that just because someone snags a few interceptions, does not mean he is easily the best in the league, it just means he sees a whole lot of passes thrown his way, something that does not happen with Terrell.
If there is one lockdown corner right now in the NFL, it is A.J. Terrell. The general public might not know it but they better start taking note.
