Freeman rushed 14 times for 42 yards, and caught four of five targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 44-21 NFC championship win over the Packers.
Atlanta's running game was bottled up for most of this one, but Freeman still managed to find the end zone through the air from four yards out. While he got 14 carries to Tevin Coleman's 11, it was Coleman who scored the game's only rushing touchdown by a running back from three yards out. Their timeshare has worked well enough to get to the Super Bowl, so expect both young running backs to be heavily involved in Houston.
Freeman ran for 45 yards and a touchdown and hauled in four receptions for 80 yards in a big game against Seattle. Although Tevin Coleman was the more effective runner, Freeman led the team with his receiving yards. He'll need to have another strong game if the

Freeman had over 100 total yards after the Falcons' first two drives, posting catches of 13 and 35 yards in the team's opening drive and then rumbling for a 75-yard touchdown in the team's second possession.

Freeman led the Falcons in targets and receptions as quarterback Matt Ryan checked down often en route to a season-high 81.8 percent completion percentage. The third-year man out of Florida St. is averaging a career-high 4.6 yards per carry, and needs just 73 yards to equal last season's rushing total of 1,056 despite the emergence of Tevin Coleman alongside him in the backfield. Freeman's also second only to Theo Riddick among running backs with 122 catches since the start of the 2015 campaign.
After scoring in the opening quarter, Freeman fumbled at the one-yard line in the second period, but he made up for it later with an impressive nine-yard scoring run just before halftime. He added a third touchdown in the second half on a 34-yard scamper. Meanwhile, Tevin Coleman had 14 carries for 58 yards and caught both of his targets for eight yards. Freeman was shut down last week's blowout win against the Rams but has otherwise been productive lately with seven touchdowns over the last four games.
