As we head into Week 5 of the NFL season, the Falcons are being lauded from all corners, and they have an impeccable 4-0 record to boast about. You'll see all of that reflected in this week's power rankings, where the Falcons are still rising.
The Falcons and Panthers round out the rest of the undefeated teams through four weeks, with Atlanta destroying the Texans and Carolina knocking off the Buccaneers. Pretty crazy turnaround for both teams, and the NFC South is resurgent this year after sending a 7-8-1 team to the playoffs in 2014.
What in the world has gotten into these Falcons? Dan Quinn certainly has exceeded everyone's expectations, especially on defense. The undefeated Falcons now have a turnover differential of plus-six (including four takeaways on Sunday), second only to Carolina in the NFL.
On a day when the Falcons racked up 48 points, how in the world did Julio Jones only catch four passes for 38 yards? If you're a Jones fantasy owner, seeing the final score and then seeing Jones' output must have been like getting excited after finding the four quarters you need to wash your underwear ... only to learn your landlord suddenly changed the price to five quarters. Not to be too specific or anything. Not like I recommended Jones in daily fantasy last week on national TV or anything.
If you're voting on NFL coach of the year today, it has to be Dan Quinn, right?
