What Devonta Freeman had to say after the 23-20 loss to the Dolphins 


Here’s what Falcons running back Devonta Freeman had to say after the 23-20 loss to the Dolphins on Thursday:

On the offense improving. “We’re just trying to work every day trying to get better. You know take it one day at a time, one game at a time and play football; it’s all football it’s simple at the end of the day.”

On improving as a runner or receiver. “I’ve just been working my craft every single day, working on the little things - pass protection, eye discipline, helping my offensive lineman by pressing my blocks; little things 

like that just to try to take my game to the next level and become the elite player that I always wanted to be.”

On his touchdown or contract celebration. “I don’t have 

to do with none of that it’s just me going out there and competing and doing what I love to do.”
