Atlanta Falcons: NFC Power Rankings, Week 7

1 of 5

The Atlanta Falcons suffered their first defeat of 2015, falling to arch rival New Orleans in the Big Easy on Thursday Night, 31-21.

Fortunately for the Falcons, they will have ten days to prepare for the 1-4 Tennessee Titans, who may not have rookie QB Marcus Mariota available.

I thought we would have some clarity after Week 6. No, we just have some truly awful football teams in both conferences. There are only seven teams in the NFC win a .500 or better record through six weeks. Trying to figure out which 2-4 team is better than another is almost silly at this point, but I will do my best.

There are now only five undefeated teams in the NFL after our Atlanta Falcons lost to the New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football: Carolina, Cincinnati, Denver, Green Bay, and New England. Let’s not forget that the Detroit Lions got into the win column for the first time in Week 6, so that’s great for the Motor City.

Without further ado, here are this Week’s NFC Power Rankings.
