Falcons’ Coach Arthur Smith on Desmond Ridder’s Performance

Atlanta Falcons head coach Arthur Smith wasn’t overly critical of his quarterback Desmond Ridder in a 20-6 loss the the Detroit Lions.

However, he wasn’t willing to absolve the second-year pro from all blame. He acknowledged there was plenty of blame to go around for an offense that didn’t crack 200 yards on Sunday.

You can hear Smith’s comments in the video below.

The Atlanta Falcons are back in action on Sunday for a 9:30 a.m. EST kickoff in London against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars were stunned at home 37-17 by the previously-winless Houston Texans
