Atlanta Falcons: NFC Power Rankings, Week 10

1 of 5

The Atlanta Falcons have lost their last two games and sit at 6-3 on the year. They will have their Week 10 Bye this week.

In all honesty, outside of maybe Dallas and Detroit, the Atlanta Falcons are playing the worst football at the moment in the NFC. The last five weeks for the Atlanta franchise have not been anywhere near as dominating as they were in the first four weeks.

The Atlanta Falcons are 2-3 since their Week 4 evisceration of the Houston Texans at home. Their two wins win in overtime at home against Washington in Week 5 thanks to a Kirk Cousins pick six and a battle between two inept offensives in Nashville against the Titans in Week 7.

Atlanta has dropped three games on the year: Week 6 on Thursday Night Football in New Orleans, Week 8 at home in overtime to Tampa Bay, and in Week 9 on the road in San Francisco by a single point. This Atlanta Falcons team needs some major adjusting in their bye week in Week 10.

This is not the same football team that started the year 5-0 and in control of the NFC. If this team wants to make the playoffs, they will have to come out of their bye fired up and go 4-3 the rest of the way. 10-6 should get at worst the six-seed in the NFC.

Without further ado, here are the NFC Power Rankings as I see them entering Week 10.
