Russell Wilson has a Super Bowl win to his credit and has the Seattle Seahawks in perennial contention. Andrew Luck, the No. 1 pick in 2012, can be there, provided injury and ineffectiveness around him in Indianapolis don¡¯t take their toll. Matt Ryan has yet to have playoff success in Atlanta. Neither has Andy Dalton in Cincinnati. Matthew Stafford has carried the Detroit Lions into playoff contention this season, and the Oakland Raiders’ Derek Carr is now in the MVP conversation, at the very least.
On Sunday night at AT&T Stadium, when the Dallas Cowboys take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, two more quarterbacks with the chance to be heirs to the current 30-somethings will play against each other — Dak Prescott and Jameis Winston.

Freeman always talks about how he gets better with more touches. Well, the Falcons won’t neglect him anyway, especially when he runs the ball like he did against the 49ers.
And his performance came just a week after he had a season-low 6 yards on six carries against the Los Angeles Rams. Freeman’s 100-yard effort against the 49ers was his second of the season, the other being a 152-yard outing against the Saints in Week 3.

It’s hard to keep a dynamic back down long, especially one with Freeman’s drive and determination.
