Falcons Running Back Officially Good To Go In Week 4

The Atlanta Falcons may not be off to the winning start that the team could have hoped for before 2022 began, but the offence has been putting up some impressive numbers, and plenty of that success can be attributed to electric running back, Cordarrelle Patterson. With a very winnable game against the 2-1 Cleveland Browns on deck, today the team officially announced that Patterson will be active in Week 4, after questions throughout the week that he may miss the chance to help this team get to 2-2, which many believe they have a good chance of doing.

Through three weeks, Patterson has been electric, rushing for over 100 yards in two out of the teams three games so far this year, and given his non-traditional use throughout his career, he really seems to be settling into the role as a lead back successfully. 

There's very few expectations on the Falcons in 2022, as they don't have their QB situation sorted, and lack elite level talent throughout every phase of the game, but with Patterson, they've been a very fun team to watch, and could potentially win a few big games this season. Patterson is a huge part of this offence, and if they can get Drake London and Kyle Pitts going too, this could turn out to be a very tough offensive unit to stop in 2022.
