6. Atlanta Falcons 6-3 (8)
The Falcons beat Tampa Bay 43-28 on Thursday Night Football. They continue to impress and quarterback Matt Ryan continues to be a front-runner for MVP.
The look to be the most complete team in the NFC South right now. They may end up getting a push from the Saints before all is said and done but for now they are the team to beat.
Quarterback Matt Ryan went 25-34 for 344-yards and four touchdowns in the victory. By the time they face the Eagles in Philadelphia on November 13th, they will have had 10 days between games.
This time of season a long break like that can help. It can hurt but for a team looking to win a division, it is huge. The Falcons will then get their bye week on November 20th before returning home to face the Cardinals on November 27th.
