The Falcons have a couple of reserve running backs banged up in Terron Ward and rookie Brian Hill. Starter Devonta Freeman is healthy coming off concussion, and he has a healthy backup in Tevin Coleman. Coach Dan Quinn implied that Ward, the third running back, would be just fine, and Ward plays a significant role on special teams. It seems unlikely Hill would be active as a fourth running back on game day even if his ankle is better by then.
The Falcons were held in check by Jacksonville, not scoring until the fourth quarter when the defense recovered a Jaguars fumble in the end zone. They failed to score any offensive points in the loss.
He led the Bills to a field goal on their first drive.
Jonathan Williams showed off some of his talent with a 21-yard touchdown run, extending the Bills’ lead early on.
In the third quarter, the Bills got out to a 17-point lead after a 1-yard touchdown by Joe Banyard. Jordan Johnson added another rushing score in the blowout win.
More concerning were the throws Newton missed. He had Greg Olsen running wide open for a would-be touchdown but couldn’t see his tight end under pressure. Two plays later, Newton had Ed Dickson about as wide open as you Cheap High Quality Jerseys can Cheap Ireland Football Jerseys have a receiver in the end zone, and missed the backup tight end by 4 yards. The 2015 Cam Newton? The guy who won league MVP? He makes this throw in his sleep.
