Packers’ Bashaud Breeland records pick-six off Falcons’ Matt Ryan

Green Bay now leads 17-7 in the second quarter. The Green Bay Packers’ defense has struggled to create turnovers this season, but cornerback Bashaud Breeland came up with a big one in the second quarter on Sunday. With the Atlanta Falcons facing a third-and-four at their own 14-yard line, Breeland identified the route being run by tight end Austin Hooper. Breaking quickly on Matt Ryan’s throw to the right sideline, Breeland easily intercepted the pass and returned it untouched to the end zone for a 22-yard touchdown return. .@Bree2Land6 takes the INT to the HOUSE! #ATLvsGB #GoPackGo...

Falcons snap counts for the Ravens game, where all went poorly

Falcons snap counts for the Ravens game, where all went poorly

It’s not about how the snaps were divvied up, it’s what happened with them. Offense Matt Ryan: 53 Jake Matthews: 53 Wes Schweitzer: 53 Alex Mack: 53 Zane Beadles: 53 Ryan Schraeder: 53 Mohamed Sanu: 44 Julio Jones: 41 Austin Hooper: 38 Calvin Ridley: 34 Tevin Coleman: 29 Ito Smith: 24 Logan Paulsen: 18 Justin Hardy: 11 Marvin Hall: 10 Ricky Ortiz: 8 Eric Saubert: 6 Russell Gage: 1 Ty Sambrailo: 1 The clues to this inept offensive performance are not necessarily found in the snap counts, though this team still makes some baffling choices.

Falcons - Saints snap counts: The last normal game of the year

With the Falcons no longer contending, snap counts may start to change. The less said about this game, the better.

Falcons snap counts: Breaking down the playing time for a brutal loss

Falcons snap counts: Breaking down the playing time for a brutal loss

Where the Falcons went awry. Offense Matt Ryan: 75 Jake Matthews: 75 Wes Schweitzer: 75 Alex Mack: 75 Ben Garland: 75 Ryan Schraeder: 75 Julio Jones: 73 Mohamed Sanu: 70 Austin Hooper: 61 Calvin Ridley: 53 Tevin Coleman: 49 Logan Paulsen: 27 Ito Smith: 22 Justin Hardy: 10 Marvin Hall: 6 Eric Saubert: 4 The Falcons were playing catchup, which explains why they had Julio and Sanu in nearly the entire game. Those are unusual snap counts in that Julio and Sanu typically play closer to 75% of the snaps, not 90%-plus. The two combined for 19 targets on a day where Ryan threw 52 passes, and...
