Defensive lineman Jack Crawford opened the last two games with the Atlanta Falcons' first unit, and his snap count increased after each game. But after recording 19 solo tackles, seven tackles for loss, six sacks and an interception last year, the eighth-year veteran hasn't quite moved the needle through three weeks.

He's registered six tackles (only two of which were solo), zero sacks and zero tackles for loss.

The Falcons might get a stronger push at the point of attack with Adrian Clayborn. In today's league, teams aren't shy about throwing early and often for a quick start.

Since Crawford has been listless as a pass-rusher, Atlanta's coaching staff should consider a shift in the starting lineup to accommodate for pass-heavy or aggressive offenses.

After playing only 76 defensive snaps through three weeks, Clayborn should see a little more time on the field to mix up the looks on the defensive line. In a limited role, he's registered two solo tackles, one tackle for loss and one sack.
