3 rise up, 3 fall down in the Atlanta Falcons win over Cardinals
The rookie running back for the Atlanta Falcons continues to rise every week. Cordarrelle Patterson is right, Tyler Allgeier should be considered for Offensive Rookie of the Year.
This week, he carried the ball for another team-leading 83 yards and was able to get himself another touchdown. He even caught a pass and proceeded to juke two defenders right out of their shoes on his way for a first down.
In his rookie season, despite not playing in week one, he has totaled 1,000 yards. Nothing short of impressive.
The other rookie, Arnold Ebiketie, did not have his best game. He only had one tackle on 31 snaps and failed to even record a hurry or pressure on David Blough. And it isn’t like the Cardinals have a good offensive line.
Although, he is a rookie who is playing a difficult position on a horrible defensive line. The whole defensive line could be listed here. I still think his future is brighter than most believe it is at this point, but he needs some help alongside him.
