Atlanta Falcons has been ranked at the 4th position by the ESPN ratings, and this time the pressure is going to be high. As per the Early Bird Reports, the Falcon’s were placed under the 32 NFL backfields, along with lots of praises for the quarterback player Tyrod Taylor! Read the news in detail.
ESPN ranks Falcon’s Backfield in the Best of NFL listing!
Falcon is all known for their versatile backfield team, with Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman being the 2 best punches for the game. Both the players are capable of beating the runners as well as the receivers.
In the latest news update, ESPN ranked the best 32 backfields and Falcon was also included in the list. Even though, they deserved to be in a higher position on the list. Falcons gained the 4th place, and they were behind the Saints, Steelers, and LA Rams.
Mike Clay from the ESPN said that if the listing was based on the backfield duos, then Atlanta would have ranked in the Top 2 positions. Since the teaming of Coleman and Freeman in 2015, they have worked together to make the partnerships of 1049 carries for 4540 yards, followed by 43 touchdowns and 223 catches. Together they have a great 4.3 YPC rating and 9.4 YPR.
Both the players have a total of 415 touches, and 16 touchdowns from the last season.
Talking about Tyrod Taylor, he is one of the underrated players of the NFL, but recently he is in the news with all praises for his performance. During the trade session with the Buffalo Bills and Browns, Tyrod was acquired by the Browns! They also got the Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield who was on the No.1 pick among all the NFL drafts.
Also to mention, the three teams ranking ahead of Falcons too have the best backfields. So do you find the ESPN’s decision of ranking the Falcons as the Best of NFL valid? What are your thoughts on this?
