Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White boldly stated that the team’s goal is to score 30 points a game following a 37-34 win against the New Orleans Saints.
The Atlanta Falcons opened their season with a somewhat shocking 37-34 win over the New Orleans Saints, who are widely considered Super Bowl favorites.
This signaled that the Falcons offense is ready to return to being one of the elite units in the NFL after dealing with injuries to their starting receivers last season.
Quarterback Matt Ryan had an incredible performance with 448 passing yards and three touchdowns, and wide receiver Roddy White had five receptions for 72 yards and a touchdown.
This caused the veteran receiver to set a goal for the team offensively. “That’s our goal. From the start of the offseason through training camp, we always told ourselves we have to score 30 a game. That’s what we want to do. It’s hard to score 30 in the NFL, I’m trying to tell you. I mean, we’ve got the personnel to do it,” White said to ESPN.com.
Although the Falcons have the offensive weapons with potential to reach this goal, it will be difficult for them to pull it off since the Denver Broncos were the only team to do it last year with 37.9 points per game.
