Monday night, the Atlanta Falcons needed to keep winning. And thanks in large part to Devonta Freeman, they would do just that. First-half fumble asidea��which a teammate would recover anywaya��it was all Freeman on Monday night.
Averaging 5.7 yards per carry, the back would rush for 122 yards. But he would also had 68 yards on five receptions. And in the end, the Falcons came out on topa��24-21.
The Buccaneers, meanwhile, continue to have a less than memorable season. Moreover, aside from the Giants, they are probably having the most disappointing of any team.
But as far as the Falcons go, a win on Monday night kept them in the sixth spot as the postseason nears. Can they hold on? They take on the division-leading Saints in New Orleans next.
