Sure didn’t seem like it while watching.

Our scheme was the majority of our problem.  Far too frequently, we ran a soft zone defense, allowing people to shred us with 2 or 3 step drops.

We played from behind the first half of the year, allowing teams to run whatever offense that they wanted.  They ran on us...  A lot.

Like with every Falcons defense ever, we were unable to cover RB's and TE's, allowing teams to set up screens or quick passes up the middle.

In the second half of the year, we started running more man defense, and lining up on the line on obvious passing downs.  That's when the sacks started happening.
