Shows improvement in Week 2 win
Pitts secured five of six targets for 73 yards in the Falcons' 48-25 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.
The fourth overall pick slogged through his NFL debut against the Eagles a week ago, but Pitts looked much more the part Sunday in a tough defensive matchup. Pitts notched a team-high 24-yard reception on his way to pacing the Falcons in receiving yardage, and he also flashed improved efficiency after bringing in only half his eight targets in Week 1. Pitts will look to continue his ascent against a vulnerable Giants defense in a Week 3 road battle.
