3 Atlanta Falcons that could shock the Rams in week two
By Nick Halden
2. Arnold Ebiketie
It might not be a popular opinion but going into week one I strongly believed that Ebiketie was Atlanta’s best chance at finding a consistent pass rusher this season. One week in and the rookie already has his first sack (on what could have been a holding call) and a number of impressive reps against the New Orleans offensive line.
Von Miller haunted the Rams in week one finding most of his success lined up on the left guard quickly overwhelming him and getting to Stafford. While Ebiketie is far from Von Miller it isn’t unrealistic to believe he can have a similar level of success against the struggling left guard.
Miller isn’t the player he once was and appeared to be in his prime taking on the Rams’ offensive line. What could the rookie do against the same offensive line in week two? It shouldn’t be surprising to Falcons fans if Ebiketie finishes this game with multiple sacks against a struggling Rams line that was unable to protect Stafford whatsoever in week one.
