If there was one person who needed to take a giant step up after the opening game, it was Ryan Schraeder. Schraeder allowed the Eagles to rack up nine pressures on him alone, finishing with the lowest rating on the entire offense.
The whole offensive line was fantastic against Carolina, but it was Schraeder that received PFF Team of the Week honors with a grade of 81.6.

For the last few years, Schraeder has become a staple of the Atlanta offensive line at right tackle. That’s why it is no surprise he was able to bounce back with a terrific showing on Sunday. The Falcons will need another performance like that against Cam Jordan and the division-rival Saints next week.
