This is not what most Falcons fans envisioned in mid-July. If anything, we expected to be 7-3 with solid playoff seeding. But that’s not how the season played out, and unless you low key invented a time machine, it is what it is. That, of course, doesn’t mean there’s nothing to look forward to. In fact, if we keep dominating divisional opponents like this, we’ll be able to stockpile smack talk for years to come.

On the fantasy football front, the Falcons defense nabbed you a lot of points if you were carrying them for some reason. And on offense, while one player sorely disappointed, others seized the moment.
The Saints beat up on the Buccaneers on Sunday, leaving both the Bucs and the Falcons at 3-7. Given their 2-0 record against divisional opponents, the Falcons are officially not in last place in the NFC South anymore. Rejoice, Falcoholics! Rejoice!
