Devonta Freeman first Falcons back to string together 3 100 yard games since Michael Turner

The headline says everything about the company Freeman is keeping, don't you think?

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Falcons haven't exactly had a stellar passing game the last three weeks, but what they have had is one of the most consistent running backs in the NFL doing fantastic work on the ground. I refer, of course, to Devonta Freeman.

Freeman's keeping elite company here, considering Michael Turner is one of the three or four best backs in Falcons history, and certainly one of the most bruising. Freeman's got a ways to go before he can claim to be on the same level, but that's from a longevity standard, not one of performance. He's running with such excellent vision and agility that I have a hard time believing there's a defense out there that can totally stop him.

Kudos to Freeman, and may he run his streak to four games against Tampa Bay this coming weekend.
