Offensive Line (Pass-Blocking)
It seemed like Chance Warmack and some other offensive linemen were missing some pass-blocking assignments. Locker was sacked three times. Fitzpatrick and Locker both combined for five rushing attempts for 51 yards. There were a few other instances when Locker had to scramble away because the Falcons defense had collapsed the pocket.

Run-blocking has been spectacular. Will that continue when teams intentionally game plan to stop CJ2K? Are some of the pass-blocking issues attributed to Locker holding on to the football for too long, lacking awareness and/or quick decision making?
