Falcons’ offense finally getting Kyle Pitts going

Mike Florio and Peter King make their picks on the players and coaches who are under the spotlight heading into Sunday's slate of action in Week 8 of the 2022 NFL season.

Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts has been one of this season’s most disappointing players. Perhaps that changes today.

Pitts has three catches for 38 yards and a touchdown in the first 20 minutes of action today against the Panthers, and his touchdown gave Atlanta a 7-3 lead.

It’s been an incredibly frustrating season for Pitts, who had just 16 catches for 178 yards and one touchdown heading into today. But it’s been a good start today in Atlanta.

If the Falcons win this game, they’ll be all alone in first place in the NFC South.
