Devonta Freeman is not short on confidence.
Despite being a key contributor to the Atlanta Falcons‘ Super Bowl LI collapse, the running back, who expects to be “blessed” with a new contract in the near future, says he would have been the star of the game if he was not benched in the fourth quarter.
“I’m just talking about from based off that game,” Freeman told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Tuesday. “Let’s say it like this, if I would have stayed in the game – I don’t know why I got out the game, actually – but if I would have stayed in the game, I would have got MVP.
“I look at my stats and I see my numbers didn’t lie. Look at my numbers.”
