The Atlanta Falcons are ranked by SB Nation as the top NFL team through Week 3.

The Atlanta Falcons are the top-ranked team in the NFL, according the latest SB Nation ranking. Out of the three remaining undefeated teams, the Falcons and Houston Texans seem to be getting the most attention. The Texans are ranked No. 2, while the third leg of the undefeated Arizona Cardinals rank No. 9.

Here's SB Nation NFL editor Joel Thorman on the Falcons rising to the top spot:

A new No. 1 for the third consecutive week. Picking Atlanta or Houston here is coin flip territory. They've both made their case to be No. 1. The Falcons get the nod here partially because I think they're only halfway there at 3-0. I see three more games in the next three weeks they should win. 6-0 is on its way.

The next three games on the schedule are against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, then Washington Redskins in Week 5, and the Oakland Raiders the following week.
