Kyle Pitts, Drake London discuss Falcons' loss to Rams

The Falcons almost pulled off a win that would’ve gone a long way in correcting the curse of Super Bowl 51.

Trailing 28-3, Atlanta made a late push after forcing multiple turnovers and blocking a punt that was returned for a touchdown.

Ultimately, the Falcons fell short in the end and are 0-2 two weeks into the 2022 NFL season.

One of the more frustrating parts of the game for many fans was the lack of targets for tight end Kyle Pitts, something that head coach Arthur Smith downplayed in his postgame press conference.

Pitts, like his head coach, wasn’t concerned about the lack of targets after the game.

“The ball just finds other people — there are designs where it goes to me,” said Pitts in the locker room after the game.

Pitts was targeted just three times in the contest, recording just two catches for 19 yards.

When asked specifically about Arthur Smith’s comments, Pitts reiterated that what he does, while he may not move the sticks, does play a role in helping others get open.

“Just begin selfless, you know,” said Pitts. “Because the ball’s not coming my way, but I’m in here to block, to help spring someone else open or run a route that gets someone else open.
