This was one of the prettiest plays you will see.

We are still early in the Falcons Saints game, and in Atlanta, it’s all about Calvin Ridley. It’s funny to think he had zero touches against the Philadelphia Eagles in week 1, and he’s the MVP early in week 3.

Here, Matt Ryan entered the dreaded red zone. Steve Sarkisian couldn’t get the offense scoring in week 1, but bounced back in week 2.

Week 3 is off to a great start.

P.J. Williams had no chance.

Ridley was drafted in the first round thanks, in part, to his silky smooth routes and awesome separation. That came in handy on this touchdown play as he sliced right through coverage like a hot knife through warm butter.

Here’s a more in-depth look at Ridley’s awesome performance so far this game.
