Two of the best ‘backs in the league battle it out next Sunday as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Atlanta Falcons. NFL Rushing leader Devonta Freeman has become a key factor in Atlanta’s offense. The Falcons are not playing as well as everyone wants you to believe, but Devonta Freeman still maintains, his high level of play. He is one of the main reasons the Falcons are 6-1. Running back Doug Martin, with his 100-yard-three-game-bonanza, sits as number 2 runningback in the NFL. Although, Tampa lost last Sunday, Doug Martin still manages to uphold his 100-yard trifecta, with another amazing running performance. He collected 136 rushing yards on 19 carries.
“After a standout performance against the Redskins, Doug Martin finds himself No. 2 on the NFL’s rushing list with 541 yards. Martin, who has already sat out a week on a bye, is just 80 yards shy of Atlanta running back Devonta Freeman. The Falcons have their bye week during Week 10.” – Reported by Joe Kania
