W, 26-9 @ Saints
Well, how about that nice road win for the Falcons over the Saints. That’s deserving of a nice boost in our NFL power rankings, especially considering how far apart both teams were in the standings entering Week 10.
It also carried playoff implications, too, as the upset endangers New Orleans’ hold on a Round 1 playoff bye. The Falcons get the Saints again in Week 13, and both NFC South games against the playoff-hopeful Panthers are on the table, too.
Atlanta has all the talent it needs to be a scary spoiler.
