The Falcons got their first win of the season by defeating the Seahawks on Sunday and Cordarrelle Patterson was a big reason why.

Now he’s been named the NFC offensive player of the week.

While Patterson wears No. 84 after entering the league as a receiver, he’s now a bona fide running back who continues to make plays. He had 17 carries for 141 yards with a touchdown in Sunday’s victory along with one 12-yard reception.

He’s rushed for at least 120 yards in two of Atlanta’s three games, as he recorded 120 yards rushing and three catches for 16 yards in the Falcons’ season-opening loss to the Saints.

It’s the first time Patterson has been named offensive player of the week. And Patterson is the first falcons running back to earn the honro since Devonta Freeman in 2016.

After a long West Coast trip, the Falcons will try to keep things rolling at home against the Browns on Sunday.

  1. Congratulations to Cordarelle, however, I believe that DeVonta Smith should have been voted the NFC offensive player of the week. 8 catches, 169 yards and a TD.

  2. Be it noted that Patterson was on his way out of the league, not having any real success as a WR, when he came to the Pats and became a Belechick reclamation project. It was Belechick who turned him into a RB, otherwise he’d probably be out of the league.
