Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs NO (7 / 5 / 72 / 1 rec)

: The one thing limiting White this year might be the Falcons' need to spread the field with three, four, and five receivers rather than the three-man game of White, Jones, and Gonzalez forcing safeties to pick its bracketing poison. White looked healthy and reliable from the onset of the game. He caught a quick-hitter in the middle of the field during the second drive and followed that up with a back-shoulder fade against Keenan Lewis for the score on a first and goal inside the Atlanta five to cap a 13-play, 80-yard drive. White was physical, and savvy with his hands to earn the separation on Lewis. He also did a great job of adjusting to a Matt Ryan scramble to get up the left flat for a 39-yard reception that put Atlanta into field goal range with less than 10 seconds in the half. The television crew was concerned that White suffered a head injury because of the way he fell to the ground and bumped the back of his head, but the replay revealed that White was kicked in the back of the knee while falling to the ground and this was the root cause for him being slow to walk off the field and an early exit to the locker room before the half. White also had the presence of mind to call a time out immediately after the catch, which a head injury might have prevented him from doing. White was no worse for wear when the second half began and he had two second-half receptions for 16 yards.

2014 Week 2 vs CIN (8 / 5 / 42 / 0 rec)

White earned some key receptions to extend the few successful drives that Atlanta had against the Bengals. He caught a quick hitch for seven yards on a leaping catch to begin the game; a short gain up the right sideline during the two-minute warning; and a 19-yard gain late in the third quarter on a deep slant of a three-step drop and throw. The final play mentioned in this series of examples is the kind of downfield throw where Ryan and White have the best chance to succeed if the offensive line continues to falter.

Falcons | Roddy White: Goal 30 points per game (Fri Sep 12, 12:57 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White said the team's goal coming into the year was to put up 30 points per game. Since 2004, 12 teams have averaged 30 or more points per game, and those teams combined for a record of 155-37. Only one of those teams, the 2004 Kansas City Chiefs, failed to make the playoffs. The Falcons' highest average with QB Matt Ryan was 26.2 in 2002, when they finished 13-3.

Our View: The Falcons can do if the offensive line is even functional. Devin Hester adds another speedy threat in the wide receiver corps, and Matt Ryan looked as good as ever in Week 1.

Falcons | Roddy White limited (Thu Sep 11, 03:54 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 11.

Our View: We'll watch this but it's probably precautionary. We have Rowdy Roddy as a WR2 this week, despite also feeling that Julio Jones will still have a big, fat WR1 game.
