There are a lot of high-powered and high-scoring offenses in the NFL, but not many teams can say that they possess the firepower on the offensive side of the ball that the Atlanta Falcons have. Bill Belichick might be a defensive minded coach, but he will have his hands full preparing for this Falcons offense.
Honorable Mentions: Tevin Coleman, Running Back; Mohamed Sanu, Wide Receiver.
3) Devonta Freeman, Running Back – Falcons’ offense wouldn’t be as good as it is without a good running game. Even though Coleman is running the ball for this team as well, he is more of a pass catcher. Freeman, on the other hand, it that ferocious runner that every team wants on its squad.
2) Matt Ryan, Quarterback – Atlanta’s signal caller is an MVP candidate and his performance in the Postseason so far has made his case even stronger. Whatever Kyle Shanahan draws up, Ryan is able to facilitate on the field. He’s got a great group of weapons and he is doing phenomenal job putting the ball where his teammates need it to be.
1) Julio Jones, Wide Receiver – When you are facing a player like Julio Jones, you can’t put just one guy on him and hope to slow him down. He is a big target with great hands, amazing playmaker that can make a difference on any single night. He will need to step up and be a big factor in order for the Falcons to beat the New England Patriots in Houston.
