Power Rankings
They will be a better team than the one that blew the Super Bowl. That doesn't mean they will get back, but they will win the NFC South.
They addressed defense in the draft, which they had to do. Coach Dan Quinn is trying to build his version of Seattle's defense in Atlanta.
They need to go back to using Matt Ryan the right way if they are to make progress in 2016. Adding center Alex Mack will help.
The offense had major issues at times last season. Matt Ryan and gang have to be better.
They missed out on an 8-8 season by losing at home to the Saints. They have to re-evaluate how they play offense.
That was an impressive victory against the Panthers, but they still will miss out on the playoffs. At least Matt Ryan looked good again.
They are now .500 and still have slim playoff hopes. They get a chance to end Carolina's perfect season this week.
They can't stop their free fall. Why? The talent on the roster is lacking.
It's gone bad, bad, bad. That early-season start looks like a long time ago.
They are heading in the wrong direction. Matt Ryan needs to get it going.
