Locked On Falcons: Is the Arrow Pointing Up For the Falcons? with Guest Adnan Ikic

Even though the Atlanta Falcons lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday, the team showed signs of improvement from their Week 1 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Small steps, right?

The offense showed signs of clicking, putting up 25 points compared to only six in Week 1. Players like running back Cordarrelle Patterson and rookie tight end Kyle Pitts made some plays to generate offense and inject some life into the team.

Unfortunately, the game unraveled late in the fourth quarter leading to a deceptive final score.

Granted, this game came against the defending Super Bowl champions, and the Bucs are on a far different level than the Falcons. If the offense had played most NFL teams, they could have gotten a win.

Maybe a performance like this will earn Atlanta its first win of the season this week against the also 0-2 New York Giants.
