Falcons Oline Vs Saints


Recommended Posts

Offensive Line Dominates

It was an efficient day for the Saints offense that only saw QB Drew Brees drop back 27 times. The offensive line did a tremendous job as he was only hurried three times and hit the turf only twice (only one hit was charged to the offensive line). Left tackle Jermon Bushrod, RG Jahri Evans, and RT Charles Brown were all perfect in pass protection, while even backup right tackle Bryce Harris was unblemished in his 14 attempts after taking over for the injured Brown. In the running game, only Brown graded negatively among the starters as the big boys up front paved the way for 153 yards on 28 carries on the ground. Though the entire group played well, Bushrod stood out as he controlled Raiders defensive ends and linebackers to the tune of a +4.9 overall grade for the day.

Falcons vs the Saints Ryan was pressured around 33% of the time. 1 out of every 3 pass attempt Ryan got pressured.

1 true reason the Saints are turning it around is the OLINE.
