Falcons have a case of 'the drops'
By Pat Yasinskas
We usually wait until Tuesday or Wednesday to discuss who leads the NFL in dropped passes. And we’ll give you the usual update sometime after the Monday night game is factored in.
But I think it’s safe to say Atlanta’s Roddy White will hang onto (pun intended) his league lead in drops. According to ESPN Stats & Information, White had two drops in Sunday’s loss to Houston. That makes 11 drops on the season for White.
The Falcons probably will move into the top five in team drops. They entered Sunday tied for No. 6 with 20 drops. In addition to White, rookie Julio Jones also had two drops, including one in the end zone on the last play of the game.
