WATCH: Devonta Freeman scores seventh TD in eight quarters

Devonta Freeman has become a touchdown machine for the Falcons.

Devonta Freeman is not willing to hand his starting role back to rookie Tevin Coleman, not without a major fight at least.

After replacing Coleman (ribs) and scoring a TD in the fourth quarter of Atlanta’s Week 2 victory over the Giants, Freeman tacked on three more in Week 3 against the Cowboys’ strong rush defense.

On Sunday, Freeman had scoring runs of 6, 16 and 23 yards.

Coleman has not played since Week 2 and is week-to-week.
