Atlanta Falcons: 4 Observations From Win Over Titans

1 of 5

The Atlanta Falcons move to 6-1 after beating the Tennessee Titans in a low-scoring affair, 10-7. In seven weeks, the 2015 Atlanta Falcons have already matched their season win total from last year with six victories.

This was not a convincing win for the Atlanta Falcons in the slightest, but at the end of the day, a win is a win. Your Atlanta Falcons are now looking like a sure lock to finish above .500 in 2015, capturing their sixth win of the season on a drizzly Sunday afternoon in Nashville.

Even with ten days to prepare for the Tennessee Titans, the Falcons came out a bit flat in this one, but had enough mental fortitude on the defensive side of the football to come out of the Music City with a Week 7 win. Though I wrongly predicted a blow-out win for the Atlanta Falcons, I’m not going to lie, this game did have a trap game type of feel to it from the very start and it nearly became the Falcons’ second loss of 2015.

I’m beginning to wonder if this team plays down to its competition in the first half, only to rally in the final quarter to try to convince us this is an elite football team. At 6-1, I think that the 2015 Atlanta Falcons are a good football team, but are they a great one? That I’m not sure of yet.

One would think that the Falcons lost the game today, as it was more of a relief than anything when the clock struck zero with a 10-7 Atlanta Falcons’ lead. Outside of NFC South rival Carolina Panthers, the Falcons may not play a strong team this regular season in what is no question the softest schedule in football. Do the Indianapolis Colts or the Minnesota Vikings intimidate you? I didn’t think so.

Perhaps the Atlanta Falcons had too much time off entering their Week 7 game with the Tennessee Titans. Though I didn’t like the performance, I’ll take the ultimate result anyway: an Atlanta Falcons’ win. Here are the four big takeaways I had from Atlanta’s 10-7 victory over Tennessee.
