Week 8: vs Detroit Lions
Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. The Falcons' offensive line is in ruins as of Week 8 - Matt Ryan was sacked five times last Sunday as the team's offensive line continues to struggle with injuries and poor play. Falcons C Peter Konz suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 7. Konz was placed on Reserve/Injured Monday, October 20 and is out for the year. Konz was the team's second-string center as starter Joe Hawley was lost for the year in Week 4. Now, the Falcons will be turning to undrafted free agent James Stone as their starting center. 'We had way too much pressure,' head coach Mike Smith said on Monday, October 20. 'Our quarterback was hit and sacked way too much. There were times where we really didn't have a chance to get the play off, and that's very difficult for a quarterback, and we have to do better with our protection.' The Lions are tied for third in the NFL with 21 sacks this season, and have hit opposing quarterbacks with regularity even when they aren't sacking them. Ryan's likely to have a long day when the Lions come to dance at Wembley Stadium in London this weekend. As the pressure on Ryan has increased, his success as a passer has decreased drastically. Once the NFL's top-ranked passing attack, the Falcons eked out 29/44 for 228 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions with five sacks taken for -42 yards last weekend. Two games back, Ryan threw 19/37 for 271 yards passing, one TD and one interception while taking four sacks for -26 yards. Julio Jones has cooled off considerably of late, with a healthy 20 targets over the last two games, but just 9/124/0 receiving to show for them - Roddy White has seen 21 for 12/140/1 while tight end Levine Toilolo has been the third-highest in targets over the last two weeks, with 11 for 5/54/0 to his credit - Toilolo has dropped several catchable balls. Antone Smith (six for 6/63/1), Devonta Freeman (eight for 7/43/0) and Devin Hester (six for 4/51/0) have chipped in around the edges - Harry Douglas has been sidelined by a foot ailment for weeks now. The Lions are #1 in the NFL in terms of total defense, averaging 290.3 yards allowed per game, and they are second in the NFL in terms of total points allowed, just one point behind Baltimore, at 105 given up by Detroit. Detroit ranks seventh in the NFL averaging 216.9 net passing yards allowed per game, with seven passing scores given up balanced by eight interceptions (tied for third in the NFL) and 21 sacks (tied-third) generated to date. Drew Brees had a surprising amount of success against the Lions last week (28/45 for 335 net yards, two TDs with one interception thrown, with one sack taken for -7 yards), but he lost the game due to the crucial interception late in the contest. Teddy Bridgewater was crushed by the Lions two weeks back (23/37 for 143 net yards, zero TDs and three interceptions thrown, with eight sacks for -42 yards taken). The Saints' numbers look like an aberration and not the beginning of a trend for this excellent unit. Advantage, Detroit.
