Is there any reason to be optimistic about the Atlanta D?
While the Falcons offense certainly hasn’t been the biggest issue through the first two weeks, a troubling trend has emerged. Atlanta is currently among the league’s worst offenses at generating 1st downs on 2nd down—a sign of an overly-conservative scheme.
The Bears present a different test for a reeling Falcons team that simply can’t afford a loss.
