The Falcons gave up 32 points. Granted, 3 of those came in absolute junk time, but that also means 29 were scored when it mattered. I sorted through a pile of garbage looking for players who stood out on offense and I basically had to dive through toxic waste and a lake full of piranhas for the defense, but we’ve got our list.
The second year corner did not get his name called much on Sunday and that’s probably a small victory for a Falcons team that got punched in the mouth, kicked in the gut and suffered a concussion after facing the Eagles. He registered 6 tackles, looked physical and was not frequently targeted, so that’s something.
He got the lone sack of the day for the Falcons and had his moments, and on a day where Atlanta gave up 32 points and the pass rush just didn’t get home all that often, that’s also something.
There were only a few standout moments in this one, and Jarrett certainly had one with a great chasedown of Jalen Hurts that stopped a drive cold. He’s still the team’s best defender and he’ll have better weeks, but even on a quieter day Jarrett’s good for a play like that.
All things come to an end. Ice cream. Hopes and dreams. Falcons games. Thank god the latter hit because I wasn’t sure any of us were going to make it.
