Atlanta Falcons: Week 11 NFL Power Rankings (#3)

Last week: 3 (+0)

Record: 8-1

I’ve said it several times before. There’s only so long you can play inferior teams close before one of them beats out and that’s what happened in New Orleans last week. Fortunately, their remaining schedule isn’t that hard (vs. Arizona, @ Tampa Bay, vs. New Orleans, @ Carolina, vs. NY Giants, @ Detroit, vs. Tampa Bay), so they should probably still be able to get the #1 seed, but I wouldn’t like their chances with someone like Chicago coming to town in the NFC Championship game.

  1. This is the kind of information that rewards my time, not just fluff. I do have one thing to say, Roddy white was running down field and somehow got himself turned around towards the quarterback and had his guy beat, he could have walked into the endzone which would have taken the lead with a short amount of time left on the clock. We gave this one away, and the very next play, Tony didn’t look the pass that would have given us a first down into his hands and would have stopped the clock.
