Atlanta continues to roll over opponents and they’ll look to remain unbeaten when they welcome in the Washington Redskins Sunday afternoon.
Atlanta led 42-0 after 3 quarters as they routed the Houston Texans at home last week.
Washington used a touchdown winning drive late in the 4th quarter as they knocked off the Eagles 23-20 to get to .500.
Kick off is set for 1:00 PM EST.
Kirk Cousins continue to surprise many people. After there was major backlash for the benching of Robert Griffin III in the preseason, Cousins had led this Washington bunch to a 2-2 record and came up clutch last time out.
Cousins finished with 290 yards passing and had a passing and rushing touchdown to his name. Cousins led the Skins on a 15 play, 90 yard drive as the Redskins used a touchdown drive late in the game to defeat the Eagles.
Washington’s offense could receive a major boost this week as WR DeSean Jackson could return from injury. Jackson has missed 3 straight weeks now with a hamstring injury, leaving a Redskins receiving core thin.
With Jackson out, Cousins continues to connect with Jordan Reed and Pierre Garcon. Reed has 278 yards receiving to go along with a touchdown and Garcon has 216 yards and a pair of touchdowns to his name.
While there are still undefeated teams out there in the NFL, the Falcons have looked the most impressive and most efficient thus far.
Atlanta had another dominating performance on Sunday as they raced out to a 28-0 halftime lead and 42-0 after 3 quarters. Atlanta is getting step up performances from everyone involved.
Typically, it’s been WR Julio Jones who’s been dominant, but this week it was RB Devonta Freeman. The RB finished with 3 touchdowns on 68 yards Sunday, which marked the 2nd straight game he recorded 3 touchdowns.
Against Dallas, Freeman finished with 141 yards and 3 touchdowns on 30 carries.
With Jones being held in check Sunday, WR Leonard Hankerson stepped up. The WR finished with 6 receptions for 103 yards and a touchdown.
