Where do we rank in the NFC SOUTH?

The Atlanta Falcons have had a delirious season so far if you ask me. Lucky for us, the NFC SOUTH has been just as crazy. The New Orleans Saints have looked like the best team in the NFC at times but struggled against the Carolina Panthers and lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and St. Louis Rams. Regardless of the Saints struggles they still rank  2nd in points, 2nd in yards and 1st in passing yards per game. Next is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, they have looked simply lost at times and have to depend on Josh Freeman week in and week out to stay somewhat close. There wins haven't really been impressive and the 48-3 lost to San Francisco was a complete embarrassment to the NFC SOUTH. The Carolina Panthers has also looked like one of the best teams in the NFC but clearly they do not know how to win games. Cam Newton is the real deal and has kept his team in every single game with his feet and his arm. He has exceeded expectations in Carolina and has brought life to the city. Finally, our Atlanta Falcons have just looked decent at best. The transition to an "explosive offensive" was not such a good idea and now that we have gotten back to our ground game our team looks much better. Matt Ryan is not having his best season but is still the guy I want leading my team. Michael Turner is back and rolling and our defense is looking better each week.

This is how the Atlanta Falcons rank in the NFC SOUTH.

Total Offense: 4th with 335 yards/game                               Total Defense: 3rd with 364 yards/game

Passing Offense: 4th with 222.3 yards/game                      Passing Defense: 3rd with 265.6 yards/game

Rushing Offense: 3rd with 112.7 yards/game                      Rushing Defense: 1st with 98.4 yards/game

Scoring Offense: 3rd with 158 total points                            Scoring Defense: 1st with 163 total points

cool fact : Falcons are 2-1 when coming off the bye week under Mike Smith.
