Falcons RB Tevin Coleman said everyone did a great job blocking and creating holes for his 100-yard day vs. Panthers. Prime example was on this outside zone play to the open side from the Falcons' 10-yard line which went for a 19-gain by Coleman. Falcons, with Coleman running strong as starter in place of Devonta Freeman (knee) and rookie Ito Smith showing his talent, currently rank sixth in the NFL after two games with average of 4.88 yards per rush. Next opponent, the Saints, allow just 3.36 yards per rush, which ranks fourth best in league. But Saints are the absolute worst in pass defense, surrendering 10.67 yards per pass play.
