3 Things we learned about the Atlanta Falcons in impressive road win
By Nick Halden
1. The Atlanta Falcons offense is dangerous
Three weeks into the season and this is the most consistent offense the Falcons have had in the last half-decade. Scoring over twenty points each of the first three weeks of the season and leaving points on the field the Falcons have left fans to reason to believe they can win a shootout and play with anyone this season.
Even when Mariota isn’t at his best the trio of Cordarrelle Patterson, Kyle Pitts, and Drake London can elevate him enough to keep the Falcons in games and consistently move the football. While Atlanta is still far from a real contender if the Atlanta offense continues to play at this level the team will be relevant deep into the season.
Relevant meaning they will be a fringe wildcard contender and not contending for the number one pick in the draft as many believe they will. If Desmond Ridder is the franchise quarterback that the coaching staff believes he is, this team has all the makings of a unit that will be very dangerous late this season.
