  • Falcons' A.J. Terrell: Picks off first pass of season

    Terrell notched nine tackles (five solo) and one interception during last Thursday's 25-0 loss to the Patriots.

    Terrell had his best performance of the season Thursday, notching a season-high nine tackles and recording his first interception of the year. Since the Falcons' Week 6 bye, the 23-year-old has registered 30 tackles, five pass deflections and one interception. If he can maintain this type of production, then he will likely remain a solid IDP option in deeper formats.

  • Falcons' A.J. Terrell: Closes strong rookie campaign

    Terrell, who collected two tackles and a pass deflection during Atlanta's 44-27 Week 17 loss to the Buccaneers, ended the 2020 season with 74 tackles, seven pass deflections, three forced fumbles and an interception.

    Terrell started in all 14 of his game appearances after Atlanta selected him 16th overall in last April's draft. The Clemson standout surrendered six touchdowns and a passer rating of 109.6 over 106 coverage targets this season, but he provided value in other areas of his game. The rookie's three forced fumbles ranked second on the team behind only Foyesade Oluokun, while his seven pass breakups represented a high among Falcons defenders this season. As a whole, Atlanta's defense aims to improve upon a 32nd-place finish against the pass, with continued improvement from Terrell playing a key role in that vision.

  • Falcons' A.J. Terrell: Drops potential game-icing INT

    Terrell registered one tackle and one pass deflection during Sunday's 17-14 loss to the Chiefs.

    With the Falcons leading 14-10 at the 2:07 mark of the fourth quarter, Terrell had a pristine opportunity to intercept Patrick Mahomes for a potential game-clinching interception. Terrell got both hands on the ball as he fell backward in the end zone, but he couldn't secure it and the pass fell incomplete. The subsequent play, Mahomes would deliver a 25-yard go-ahead touchdown strike to Demarcus Robinson. Atlanta drops to a record of 2-8 in one-possession games this season, having suffered four straight defeats by five points or fewer.

  • Falcons' A.J. Terrell: Nabs first NFL interception

    Terrell collected his first career interception along with a team-high seven tackles during Sunday's 40-23 win against the Vikings.

    The first-round rookie had been a full-time contributor in his first three appearances of the season entering Sunday, playing at least 98 percent of the defensive snaps Weeks 1, 2 and 5. Results hadn't translated in the early going, as Terrell allowed 11 of 12 targets thrown his way to go for completions, surrendering 129 yards and a touchdown on those plays. Sunday he notched his first NFL takeaway, as the Falcons intercepted Kirk Cousins on three occasions. Terrell has missed two games this season while on the reserve-COVID-19 list, but now that he's been able to string together a pair of appearances, perhaps the rookie will settle into a groove under interim head coach Raheem Morris.
