Vick, Dunn and Norwood prove Rush is just as important as Pass. Defense Stout.

Many fans might have thought week one was a fluke for Atlanta as they ran left, right and over top of the Carolina Panthers amassing 252 yards total on the ground. But week two proved the Atlanta Falcons are here to stay, running for a franchise record 306 yards between the three runners. Vicks minimal passing yards mattered not as the Falcons defense has been an even bigger story this 2006 season.
The Atlanta Falcons defense which was 27th last year at stopping the run has cranked it up a notch. Two weeks into the season they have only given up 106 yards total on the ground and yet to give up a Touchdown. Without middle linebacker Edgerton Hartwell and NFC Defensive Player of the Week John Abraham due to a groin injury the backups were more than efficient.
The Falcons biggest test defensively comes next week in a Monday Night show down with the two-headed monster of Deuce McAllister and Reggie Bush in the grand re-opening of the Superdome in New Orleans. New Orleans hosts the Falcons as another NFC South opponent presenting a 2-0 record. For the Falcons if they reach 3-0 they will have knocked off all three divisional opponents in a 1-2-3 knockout.
