Atlanta Falcons, D/ST
The Falcons essentially rearranged their coaching staff over a Week 9 bye, and results have followed defensively. Over their last two games, against the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers, they’ve allowed a total of 12 points with 11 combined sacks and four interceptions (all off Kyle Allen in Week 11).
Facing Jameis Winston always provides opportunities for an opposing defense, and he delivered nicely again with four interceptions in Week 11. In four of his last five games, he has thrown multiple interceptions with at least one fumble lost in three of those five contests.
If Atlanta gets after Winston the same way they did Drew Brees and Allen in the last two games, they will surely get sacks and create a bushel of ill-advised throws. There’s an argument for the Falcons as the No.1 streaming defense for Week 12, albeit with a measure of risk-reward in play.
