3 Atlanta Falcons whose stock is up after week three
By Nick Halden
1. Kyle Pitts
Finally, the Atlanta Falcons offense consistently put the ball in Kyle Pitts’ hands, and unsurprisingly to every Atlanta armchair coach and GM great things happened. Mariota looked for Pitts from the first play of the game targeting him on a missed deep throw but unlike previous weeks didn’t give up after one missed pass.
Whether it was screens or making a tough sideline grab Pitts had a consistent impact on this game. Pitts finished the game with 87-yards and if not for a missed Mariota deep throw would have flown past 100-receiving yards easily. This is the Kyle Pitts Atlanta Falcons fans were expecting to be a crucial part of this offense.
Fans got a glimpse of how great this offense can be with Pitts, London, and Patterson are all playing at a productive level. This is hopefully a sign that Pitts and Mariota are finally on the same page and not the outlier it currently is through three games this season. Kyle Pitts is too elite of a talent not to put the ball consistently through his hands.
