Atlanta Falcons: Week 5 NFL Power Rankings (#2)

Last week: 2 (+0)

Record: 4-0

Well, it wasn’t pretty, but the Falcons got their 4th win to become the NFL’s 3rd 4-0 team this season. Arizona is think is a complete fluke, but both Houston and Atlanta are for real and it wouldn’t surprise me at all to see these two teams in the Super Bowl. Houston has the edge right now because none of their games have been really close. Plus, they have the yards per play differential edge and I think they’re more well rounded. Atlanta’s defense looked awfully leaky last week. That could eventually be their downfall.


RB Michael Turner: Rushed for 103 yards (52 after contact) on 13 carries, 11 broken tackles, allowed 1 quarterback hurry on 4 pass block snaps, caught 3 passes for 68 yards and a touchdown on 5 attempts, 1 drop
