Despite red-zone woes, Falcons can put you in the black

5


If Falcons offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian and quarterback Matt Ryan can solve some of their red-zone problems, I think they are back in business. On the Carolina side, it’s never a good thing when your quarterback — Cam Newton in this case — is your leading rusher as he was against Dallas. You need some kind of running game.

The play: I like the Falcons to bounce back and get to 1-1, especially if they can find a way to throw to Julio Jones in the middle of the field instead of pinning him on the sideline. In fact, to get around their red-zone trouble, why don’t they just score from 25 or 30 yards out? Maybe the Falcons can just get Jones into a track meet to cure what ails them.
