Should the Falcons have gone for it on fourth down late against the Vikings?

Should the Falcons have gone for it on fourth down late against the Vikings?

An examination of the situation. Near the end of this one, with just over five minutes to go, the Atlanta Falcons found themselves in a tough situation. Having just completed a pass to Taylor Gabriel that fell short of the first down marker, the Falcons were faced with this choice. Kick the field goal with Matt Bryant from 47 yards out, putting you down two points and giving the ball back to your defense; Go for it and try to convert a 4th and 2, keeping the drive alive and hopefully scoring a touchdown that would have given you a lead.

The Falcons scored their first third quarter offensive touchdown of 2017 on Sunday

The Falcoholic Midseason Position Review: Special Teams

Fact: Matt Bryant once killed a yak from 100 yards away with mind bullets The Atlanta Falcons have been decidedly mediocre on special teams this season. According to Football Outsiders, their special teams DVOA is -0.5%, 18th in the league. For context, that means they’re basically slightly below average. Last season their special teams DVOA was 0.7%, 12th in the league. In short, they’ve regressed a little bit. Let’s break this down further. Matt Bryant Notwithstanding his current left leg injury, Bryant is still Mr. Dependable. (Bryant is listed as “probable” for...
