Falcons vs. Texans: Who was the offensive player of the game?

New, comments

It’s time to vote for the least offensive player!

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Houston Texans Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Under normal circumstances, scoring 32 points on the road should get you close to winning the game. These are not normal circumstances. Even on a day when the offense struggle-scored over 30, the defense managed to crap the bed to the tune of 47 points allowed. Let’s take a look at who was the least offensive on the offensive side of the ball!

Matt Ryan

The pick six to finish the game will surely stick in the minds of some fans, but on a day when Ryan was continually harassed in the pocket (Kaleb McGary needs to buy Ryan an apology card), the QB of this struggling franchise completed 32 of 46 passes for 330 yards, 3 touchdowns and the one inconsequential pick. There are a lot of issues with this team, but at least our QB has begun to turn his season around.

Calvin Ridley

Our offensive coordinator was finally notified that Calvin Ridley can play wide receiver. That information led to 5 catches for 88 yards and an absolutely beautiful touchdown catch. It’s unfortunate that our OC can’t seem to find a way to get both Julio Jones and Calvin involved in the same game, but we’ll take this for now.

Mohamed Sanu

Hey, he had 5 catches for 42 yards and a touchdown and was again converting key third downs. Sanu has been remarkably consistent and if this is his last season in Atlanta, we should all appreciate how hard he played in every single game.

Dirk Koetter

With the way he’s calling this offense, he’s ensuring he absolutely won’t be back past 2019. And for that, I’m extremely grateful.

Vote for your favorite least offensive player!
