Falcons: Jalen Mayfield shows that he can be a piece of the future in Week 3

The Falcons got an ugly win in Week 3 against the Giants, but I’ll take an ugly win over a pretty loss any day of the week. Atlanta’s offensive line was a big part of that, and according to some measurables, Jalen Mayfield played as well as anyone along the Falcons front.





As you can see, Mayfield was a little bit better than league average, but it’s a far cry from the beatings he took in Week 1 and Week 2. A lot of the fanbase had already turned on Mayfield, but Arthur Smith gave him a vote of confidence, and Mayfield took advantage. It certainly helps he isn’t facing Fletcher Cox, Vita Vea, or Ndamukong Suh this week. I’m not sure if this is a sign of things to come for Mayfield in 2021, but hopefully, he can become that starter-level left guard the Falcons hoped they were getting with a third-round pick.
