The Falcons avoided a Super Bowl hangover to the extent that they still qualified for the playoffs and reached the Divisional Round last year. However, their exceptional offense that was on display in 2016 saw a sharp drop in production last season with Steve Sarkisian replacing departed Kyle Shanahan as the offensive coordinator. One of the biggest questions the club faces this year is, can Sarkisian recapture some of the 2016 magic in year two at the helm? Matt Ryan's 2017 was a return to his pre-2016 MVP form. That's not to say Ryan was bad, but 2016 is the clear outlier, and Ryan's more good than elite. He still has a top-shelf No. 1 receiver to throw to in the form of Julio Jones, and he could build on last year's numbers with the addition of another weapon in the passing attack via the draft. With the 26th pick in this year's NFL Draft, Atlanta popped Alabama wide receiver Calvin Ridley. He'll slot in nicely behind Jones and with possession receiver Mohamed Sanu.

Falcons Look Strong on Both Sides of the Ball

The talented one-two pairing of well-rounded running backs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman gives the Falcons an embarrassment of riches on offense that most teams can't match. Atlanta's offense can beat teams through the air and on the ground, but Sarkisian will need to do a better job of pushing the right buttons. I think there's too much talent on the offense for it to fall short of a top-10 scoring offense finish again this year after finishing 15th last year.

A big part of the reason the Falcons were able to reach double-digit wins and the Divisional Round of the playoffs last year despite the slide on offense was their defense. Atlanta ranked in the top 10 in scoring defense. Despite that strong rank, there were some blemishes. They ranked in the middle of the pack in sacks and near the bottom of the league in turnovers forced. Atlanta's defense's greatest strength is their secondary, but that didn't stop them from adding cornerback Isaiah Oliver with the 26th pick in the second round. They also added help to their defensive line in the third round selecting defensive tackle Deadrin Senat.

The front seven is a mix of big-time talent such as Deion Jones and Grady Jarrett, and some question marks. Among those question marks is Vic Beasley Jr. The pass-rushing specialist who the team selected with the eighth overall pick in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft tallied only five sacks in 2017 after racking up 15.5 sacks the year before. A reversion back to his 2016 form would do wonders for the defense. Atlanta has enough talent to challenge for the division, but ultimately I think they'll settle for a Wild Card berth.
