Atlanta’s high-flying offense had its way with every defense
Super Bowl except Jim Schwartz’s unit. The Philadelphia Eagles shut down the Falcons in a 24-15 victory in Week 10 last season http://www.newyorkjetsteamonline.com/jac...ite-jersey , holding them to a season low in points, first downs (11) and yards (303). They’ll try to do it again with a berth in the NFC championship game at stake. When the Falcons (11-6) visit the Eagles (13-3) in a divisional playoff game on Saturday, Schwartz will turn to the blueprint he used last season. But he knows that doesn’t guarantee success again. ”They are a little bit different than last year,” Schwartz said. ”It’s a new season. Playoff games stand on their own.” Julio Jones had 10 catches for 135 yards, but didn’t score a touchdown against the Eagles in that game. Matt Ryan completed only eight passes to other receivers for 132 yards, including a 76-yard TD to Taylor Gabriel. Schwartz doesn’t care about allowing Jones to rack up fantasy points. Keeping him out of the end zone is more important. ”If Julio Jones has 350 yards receiving and we win the game, that’s what it took to win the game,” Schwartz said. ”If he has 10 yards receiving for the game-winning touchdown, then that wasn’t enough. ”So I think you have to look at it that way. How do you stop their offense, how do you minimize their scoring and not just concentrate on one player because they do have other players that are threats. It’s not just a one-man team.” The Eagles blitzed Ryan more than usual and the 2016 NFL MVP had his worst game of the season. He was sacked twice Chuma Edoga Jersey , threw one interception, completed only 55 percent of his passes and had a 78.7 passer rating. Schwartz has more talent on his defense now, including more depth on the defensive line and a revamped secondary. The Eagles often generate a strong rush without relying on the blitz and they have cornerbacks who can handle receivers one-on-one if Schwartz wants to be aggressive. ”They are a very good offensive protection team as far as picking up blitzes,” Schwartz said. ”Blitz is not a whole lot different than pass rush. You can’t expect to have guys free. If you’re expecting to get guys free, you’re in the wrong business because the only way you can really get a guy free is to bring more than they can block and there’s some risk inherent to that. ”But blitz is really all about guys winning one-on-ones, and when you do that, then your blitz game is going to be effective and I’m not just talking about one-on-ones in pass rush, but I’m talking about one-on-ones in coverage, too. Both of those go hand in hand.” Under first-year offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian, who replaced Kyle Shanahan after he left to coach San Francisco http://www.newyorkjetsteamonline.com/tre...sco-jersey , the Falcons had a big drop-off in production. They went from No. 1 in scoring at 33.8 points per game to 15th at 22.1. They fell from second in yards to eighth. But they still have Ryan, Jones, Devonta Freeman, Tevin Coleman, Mohamed Sanu and Austin Hooper. ”They look sharp and they’re playing at a high level,” defensive end Chris Long said. ”We’ll have to bring our `A’ game.” — AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL — TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Jameis Winston says his injured right shoulder is “getting better every single day,” however the Tampa Bay quarterback still isn’t throwing in practice.The Buccaneers decided against the third-year pro testing his arm Thursday, saying Winston instead will work with the first-team offense on Friday.“We made a decision to hold him another day from throwing. He did everything else,” coach Dirk Koetter said. “I fully expect that Jameis takes all the snaps (Friday).”Asked if that’s an indication Winston could be on track to start Sunday’s game at Buffalo Alexander Mattison Jersey , Koetter smiled.“You guys will get an injury report,” the coach said, “and you can draw your own conclusion.”More Tampa Bay Buccaneers newsJameis Winston aims to realize potential under guidance of new Buccaneers coach Bruce AriansBuccaneers sign 5th overall selection LB Devin WhiteNdamukong Suh practices with Buccaneers for first time, dons customary No. 93 jerseyNdamukong Suh agrees to terms with Bucs, replaces 6-time Pro Bowler Gerald McCoyBuccaneers release 6-time Pro Bowl DT Gerald McCoy after nine seasonsWinston, who has a sprained AC joint in his throwing shoulder, was listed as “limited” in practice for the second straight day.Teams typically don’t declare a player’s status for an upcoming game until Friday.Earlier in the week, Koetter said Winston is day to day and that a decision on whether he plays would be based, in part, on whether the quarterback feels he is able to throw with enough velocity.Winston said before practice Thursday that he took “mental reps” on Wednesday and that he had no idea when a decision will be made on his availability for Sunday.In the meantime http://www.minnesotavikingsteamonline.co...mia-jersey , backup Ryan Fitzpatrick is preparing to face the Bills, one of seven teams he’s played for during a 13-year career.“When they let me go, I’m ready,” Winston said, adding that the long-term health of his shoulder is the primary concern.“It’s not really about the passes and making the throws. It’s the pain,” he said. “This is a long season. That’s the biggest thing, it’s a long season.”Winston was injured during Tampa Bay’s opening possession at Arizona last week. He returned for two more series before being replaced by Fitzpatrick.The 23-year-old has made 37 consecutive starts to begin his career.Winston said whether he plays will be a “joint decision,” though ultimately the team would have final say.“Right now, mental reps, getting my shoulder right Daniel Jones Jersey , treatment, treatment, treatment is what I’m focusing on,” Winston said. “And when Sunday comes, we all will know what’ll happen.”107<button class="view-gallery">View Gallery</button> Gallery:Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleader photo galleryReinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports | Reinhold Matay
