Week 5: vs Washington Redskins
All TE vs WAS
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Matt Ryan (19/27 for 256 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown) and Julio Jones (six targets for 4/38/0 receiving) cooled off in the contest vs. Houston last week. Leonard Hankerson (eight targets for 6/103/1) and Devonta Freeman (six for 5/81/0) moved the football the most for the Falcons in this phase of the game last week. Entering Week Five, it's all good for the Falcons on this powerful unit.
The Washington Pass D allowed 23/32 for 279 net yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions to Eli Manning and company two weeks ago, and then coughed up 15/8 for 270 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions to the Eagles' Sam Bradford and company last week. To date, the team is ranked ninth in the NFL averaging 210.0 net passing yards allowed per game, with seven passing scores given up vs. zero interceptions generated (last in the NFL). The club has nine sacks to their credit through the first 25% of the season.
Advantage, Atlanta. Also, the rushing matchup is tough this week so look for the Falcons to throw the ball frequently in this game.
