3. Falcons can't take advantage of weak division

We know how volatile divisional games are. We see so many bad teams who can beat up on those teams sitting above them in the standings.

On paper, the Falcons are the NFC South's best team and they need to show that. Losing to the Buccaneers, Saints, and Panthers could rob them of making the postseason. They need to ignore the volatile nature of these games and play like the better team.

These are six games coming against lesser opponents that are two-game swings on the journey to the playoffs. Ending with an even or losing record would be a nightmare.
