Steven Jackson Provides The Falcons With A Much Needed Boost

Quarterback Matt Ryan set five Falcons single-season passing records. While impressive, it made the Falcons one-dimensional, relying too much on their aerial attack. With the addition of All-Pro running back Steven Jackson, the Falcons can now be dangerous both through the air and on the ground.
