NFL Power Rankings Week 8: Falcons In The Middle

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons clock in at #17 in the latest SB Nation Power Rankings.

The Falcons were in a power rankings freefall for weeks, but they've snapped back somewhat thanks to the win against the Buccaneers. It's the gift that keeps on giving!

The Falcons clock in at #17 in the Power Rankings this week. Here's the blurb.

17. Atlanta Falcons

Beating a confused Buccaneers team was a nice way for the Falcons to come out of a bye week. Atlanta's start to the season is still going to make it next to impossible to catch the Saints in the NFC South, and a wild card spot isn't very realistic either. However, the Falcons should still be a competitive team, just prone to the occasional drubbing.

Where would you rank the Falcons?
