Calvin Ridley embarrasses Dallas defense for second touchdown of the day

So. Good.

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Dallas Cowboys Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

We spent a lot of the offseason wondering which players would breakout in 2020. Nearly every list had Calvin Ridley at the top of it. Ridley has flashed throughout his first two seasons with impressive athleticism and elite route running, however, he was never able to break into the top wide receiver territory.

That is changing as Ridley is breaking out. He put up his second touchdown in the first half of the Dallas game. Both touchdowns are absolutely impressive.

This is reminiscent of Ridley destroying Saints corner PJ Williams in his rookie year for another multi-touchdown game. He is just absolutely outplaying this corner in a way you do not often see on the field.

With the Dallas Cowboys intent on slowing down Julio Jones, Ridley and Hayden Hurst have been able to eat against single coverage. At this rate, Ridley should definitely be in the discussion for offensive player of the week.
