Week 8 Judgements: Falcons Playing Like Nfl's Best, Especially On The Road


Recommended Posts

Looked and didnt see this posted.


Maybe it's time we appreciate Atlanta for what it is -- the best team out there. Nope, I'm not completely sold on the Falcons, either, but they showed me something by destroying Philadelphia ... in Philadelphia ... and after the Eagles had a bye. We all know the Falcons are a tough out at home, but it's on the road where they've been impressive this season. They're 4-0 there, winning by an average margin of 15 points and with Matt Ryan completing 71.7 percent of his passes there, with 11 touchdowns and only two interceptions. "We know we're a good football team," tight end Tony Gonzalez said, "but we can't get too much into ourselves." Good idea, considering the Falcons are 0-3 in the playoffs with Ryan and coach Mike Smith.

3. The Falcons are 41-2 under Smith when leading at halftime, and that tells me something. It tells me these are smart players and smart coaches working together not to screw up.


1. Atlanta

2. Chicago

3. Houston

4. N.Y. Giants

5. San Francisco
