Freeman was met with two Rams defenders, and looked like he might be stopped short. That is, until Alex Mack came in and basically carried his teammate into the end zone:
The Falcoholic had a good idea as to how the scoring distribution of the game (Falcons 13, Rams 0) should look:
Alex Mack 3, Matt Bryant 7, Devonta Freeman 3 https://t.co/gdlRvCmx6S— The Playoffoholic (@TheFalcoholic) January 7, 2018
Mack has been great since he arrived in Atlanta. He’s been given two consecutive, second-team All-Pro nods, and has made the Pro Bowl five times in his career.
It won’t go in the box score, but we can probably go ahead and credit him with his first career rushing touchdown on this one. He earned it.
