Atlanta Falcons: 3 players who must step up in week 11 vs. Bears
4 of 4
The Atlanta Falcons will need LB Rashaan Evans to step up in week 11
Rashaan Evans is going to be another crucial piece in the success of the Atlanta Falcons’ defense against the Bears.
Evans has been the only consistent at the coverage linebacker spot with the frequent switches between Mykal Walker and Troy Anderson behind him.
Evans needs to be able to stop the run, whether that is a running back carrying the ball or the quarterback, he needs to play faster than he has all year. The Falcons cannot let Justin Fields have another 60+ yard touchdown run and another 150-yard rushing game. The chances of them losing go way up with either of those happening.
Again, the linebackers might be the biggest key for this team in week 11, they will be the difference between the Bears scoring 30 points or 15 points.
