Atlanta Falcons quarter season pace on offense

New, comments

They’re on pace to be great, unsurprisingly.

Through four games, the Falcons are on pace to smash their offensive numbers from a year ago. This is still good news, even though the season’s already on shaky ground, and I thought you might all want to see it broken out.

I’ve got the team stats from last year next to this year, so you can see just how hilariously far ahead the offense is compared to a year ago. Let’s hope they can keep the pace going through the air, and exceed their current pace on the ground.
