Atlanta Falcons’ wide receiver Roddy White is fast beginning to gain the recognition he deserves. His resume speaks for itself but it’s plays like this 46-yarder that show the rest of the country just what a talent the Falcons have at receiver.
This 46-yard catch setup a Brian Finneran touchdown and gave the Falcons an early 7-0 lead over the Bengals in their Week 7 showdown. White leads the NFC in every major statistical receiving category and is a virtual lock for the Pro Bowl and likely an All-Pro berth.
White has accounted for 64 of the Falcons’ 79 passing yards. He is the best receiver nobody is talking about. He should be past 100 yards by halftime and on his way to a career-high if the Bengals don’t slow him down.
The Bengals are without Johnathan Joseph today which should free up the Falcons passing game substantially leaving White to continue to make plays like this.
