The Atlanta Falcons hit the ground running, starting the year off 5-0. Since that point, it’s been a simply brutal run. So, what’s been the main cause of the struggles for the Falcons?

According to Vaughn McClure of ESPN, this one stat, which Dan Quinn nearly didn’t believe, may sum it up.

That’s pretty amazing to think about, especially since both Julio Jones and Devonta Freeman are such massive parts of the gameplan for the Falcons. It’s obvious that both of them will need to find the end zone sooner than later for Atlanta to turn things around.
