    It’s beyond absurd that the Falcons can be at #6 after losing their past two games to the Bucs and Niners. I suppose if they actually win another game this season they will be moved ahead of everyone.

    • Tim Edell

      Couldn’t agree more… To have Atlanta (6-3) who has lost to 3 teams that all have losing records ahead of Green Bay is ridiculous. The Packers 2 losses were to teams who combine for a 17-1 record.

    • TorreyAnderson

      I do agree with you. But to be fair, the 6-2 Vikings lost to the 49ers too. That team can get ya when you don’t expect it. And that loss, imo, can be chalked up to HC Quinn on kicking that FG instead of going for the go-ahead TD on the 1 yard line late in the game.

  • Kellan Weyer

    They have the Falcons ahead of the Packers. Let that sink in.

  • John Elway

    This is poor. Inaccurate rankings with random descriptions….expected more
