    FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. Drew Hutchison Blue Jays Jersey . - Only two NFL running backs have more touchdowns than Atlantas Antone Smith.The mystery is why Smith hasnt had more chances to add to his total.Among Falcons running backs, Steven Jackson, Jacquizz Rodgers and Devonta Freeman have more carries than Smith this season.Smith has delivered four big-play scores on his rare touches a€” from 38, 48, 54 and 74 yards. Two touchdowns came after short catches.The only NFL running backs with more touchdowns are Marshawn Lynch and DeMarco Murray, who have combined for more than 200 touches. Smiths touchdowns have come on only 17 carries and catches.It appears there will be more opportunities for Smith against the Chicago Bears on Sunday.You get what you earn in this league, said Falcons coach Mike Smith. And what hes done through these first five games and a couple of games last year when he had the opportunity to touch the football, hes earned more opportunities to touch it, theres no doubt about that.Hes been a very explosive player for us. The numbers are what they are. We want to make sure that we get the ball in playmakers hands.Smith, 29, is far from an overnight success. He finished his college career at Florida State in 2008 and, after not being drafted, had short stints with the Lions, Vikings and Texans before joining the Falcons practice squad in 2009. His speed served him well on special teams work before given a chance to show his big-play potential as a running back late last season.Smith had only five carries in 2013, but that was enough to produce 50- and 38-yard touchdown runs. He has 11 carries for 121 yards and six receptions for 156 yards this season.Falcons receiver Roddy White said Smiths big plays are no surprise for anyone who has seen his speed.Hes very explosive, White said Thursday. If we can get the ball in his hands and its one-on-one, nine times out of 10 hes going to out-run the guy thats trying to tackle him.We watch him every day and we know how fast he is and he knows the opportunity is out there for him to make big plays. Were going to try to get him matched up one-on-one as much as possible in the game and try to give him the ball.After waiting so long for his first chances to touch the ball last season, Smith has remained patient for his playing time to increase.My job is just to be a great teammate and go out and do my job, he said. Thats all I try to do. I dont try to control whats going on upstairs or who makes the decisions when Im in there or when Im not. I just try to go out there and when my number is called make the play to the best of my ability.Smith had three catches for 83 yards, including a 74-yard touchdown, in last weeks 30-20 loss at the Giants.Smith (5-9, 192) bristled at the suggestion he struggles in pass-blocking and so could never be more than a specialty back.I have no problem with that, he said. Thats one of the things they said I had to work on. With any running back, youve got something to work on. Running the ball is easy. Catching the ball is easy. But pass protection, when youve got a quarterback like Matt, youve got to be able to protect him.NOTES: WR Devin Hester (hamstring)and WR Harry Douglas (foot) did not practice. LG Justin Blaylock (back) practiced and appears on track to starting. ... The Falcons signed WR Ryan Spadola to the practice squad. He appeared in three games with the Jets and one with the Dolphins last season and did not have a reception.___Online:AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Charles Odum on Twitter: Drew Hutchison Jersey .J. -- Omar Cummings helped the Houston Dynamo advance to the MLS Eastern Conference finals. J.A. Happ Jersey . Vonn punctuated her near-perfect season in perfect fashion Friday, earning her fourth overall World Cup title with a dominating giant slalom victory. ARE, Sweden -- Anna Fenninger seized the lead in the overall Alpine World Cup standings on Friday by winning a giant slalom for the second straight day. The 24-year-old Austrian extended her first-leg lead to beat Viktoria Rebensburg of Germany by 0.61 seconds. "Its just amazing. It was a fight in the second run," said Fenninger, the Olympic silver medallist in giant slalom, who had to contend with cross winds, rain and a rutted snow surface. Jessica Lindell-Vikarby of Sweden was third, trailing 0.68 behind Fenningers combined time of 2 minutes, 00.15 seconds, and retained her lead in the season-long GS standings. Still, it is Fenninger who leads overall, using the 100 race points for victory to take a slender seven-point advantage -- 1,151 to 1,144 -- over Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany. "Im so happy that I can win two times in Are," said Fenninger, whose late-season surge has her contending for the overall title for the first time. Hoefl-Riesch, the 2011 overall champion, had a better second run yet still placed 10th, 2.32 behind her new rival. Marie-Michele Gagnon of Lac-Etchemin, Que., was 25th and Marie-Pier Prefontaine of St-Sauveur, Quue. Michael Saunders Jersey. , didnt qualify for the second run. Five scheduled races remain this season, starting with a slalom on Saturday when the German will be favoured to regain the lead. Hoefl-Riesch, the 2010 Olympic slalom champion, has three top-5 finishes in World Cup slaloms this season, while Fenninger has not started in the discipline since December 2011. Fenninger also won the Olympic super-G title last month, and has two victories and a runner-up finish in three World Cup races since the Winter Games. Rebensburg, who took a bronze medal defending her Olympic GS title in Sochi, got her best-placed finish of the season. With one GS race remaining, Lindell-Vikarby has a 14-point lead over Fenninger in the discipline standings. The final race closes World Cup finals week at Lenzerheide, Switzerland, on March 16. On Saturday, new Olympic slalom champion Mikaela Shiffrin of the United States will start as favourite. She placed 24th on Friday, more than three seconds behind the winner. American teammate Julia Mancuso placed 20th and fell outside the top-25 places in the season-long GS standings, which determines the line-up at the World Cup finals.
