NFL Power Rankings 2012: Falcons remain a solid No. 2

Matt Sullivan

Atlanta remains a solid No. 2 in NFL power rankings across the Internet, despite widespread concerns about what has transpired with the team the past two weeks.

In what comes as no surprise, the Atlanta Falcons remain a solid No. 2 in NFL power rankings across the web, despite concerns about Atlanta's recent play. The Falcons successfully came back from their week 10 loss to the New Orleans Saints by defeating the Arizona Cardinals, 23-19, at the Georgia Dome last weekend, despite five Matt Ryan interceptions. Atlanta has a three game lead on 6-4 Tampa Bay in the NFC South.

In SB Nation's latest rankings, the Falcons remained at the No. 2 spot. SB Nation maintains that it says a lot about the Falcons that they can be tested with six turnovers and still find a way to win.

In ESPN's rankings, the Falcons also remain at No. 2. ESPN NFC West blogger Mike Sando notes that while the 9-1 record is certainly impressive, there is nothing impressive about Atlanta's past two weeks.

CBS Sports also has their latest rankings, and ranks the Falcons No. 2 as well. CBS says that the Falcons have been exposed the past two weeks, and that they must fix their issues, or they'll be a one-and-done playoff team again.
