If there was a positive in the Atlanta Falcons' 34-10 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, it might have been the play of running back Steven Jackson.
The veteran seemed to run with the type of power the Falcons expected from him all along. Jackson gained 57 yards on 11 carries, including a long run of 13 yards.
"I was able to make a couple plays out there," Jackson said. "Once again, a step in the right direction. Definitely some things to work on. [I'll] look at the film Monday and see what I can get better at."
Maybe by week 13 Steven Jackson will be ready to help fantasy owners. This sweaty beast is an afterthought in today's marketplace.
