Falcons vs Vikings 2015: Who to Watch versus Minnesota

New, comments

Hankerin' to know who to watch this week? Well, I've got you covered, pal.

Tevin Coleman, Running Back

Atlanta will practically be playing their second straight game without their leading rusher in Devonta Freeman, leaving the offense to rely on Tevin Coleman to man the backfield on Sunday afternoon. Tevin has started to establish a slight habit of losing the football early in his rookie year, and will need to have tight ball security if the Falcons are to control the ground against a tough Vikings squad.

Matt Ryan, Quarterback

Your twitter feed won't tell you, but Matt had an above average showing last week that was shadowed entirely by a questionable call after a tipped pass and a last second bomb to the end zone that resulted in a pick. The Falcons played well enough to win last week, and Matt Ryan is to thank for that. Look for him to build upon last game and possibly get this team back on track.

Ryan Schraeder, Offensive Tackle

Ryan Schraeder has been a pleasant surprise on the line this year, and has consistently been rated on PFF as one of the better tackles in the league. Last week wasn't exactly his best showing, however, and with some fans calling for Jake Long, Schraeder has to feel like there's something to prove in front of the fans. I'm keeping my eye on him, personally.

Who do you've got on your eye this week?
