After ranking in the top ten across the board last week, the Falcons might lose ground after eking out a 16-14 win over an 0-4 team.
Fanhouse is the first on the board, dinging the Birds from ninth down to 12th:
- Rallying from 14-0 down at home to win is always nice, even when it's a game as flawed as the Falcons' effort against winless San Francisco. Atlanta can be happy with the win, but like so many teams that won Sunday, it wasn't exactly a great performance.
Pro Football Talk disagrees, rising Atlanta up from sixth to fourth:
The Dirty Birds are winning ugly, and winning ugly is still winning.
SB Nation NFL inches the Falcons up into single digits:
Fox Sports has the Falcons sliding one, down to fifth:
Atlanta is starting to show why it is a good team. In a game where they might have been outplayed, the Falcons found a way to steal one against the 49ers. Those are the type of games where you have to find a way to win if you want to be a playoff team.
