We’re just two games into the NFL season, but it seems like the Atlanta Falcons have found the remedy for the Super Bowl hangover.
It’s called having a damn good team.
Since they blew the 25-point lead to the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl last February, all we’ve heard about was how they would have problems responding to that loss.
As a team, they did a lot of things to overcome it, including training with Navy Seals, having head coach Dan Quinn reach out to a lot of coaches in other sports who had those types of losses, and having their MVP quarterback go into a funk for two weeks before snapping out of it.
The Falcons blew out the injury-plagued Green Bay Packers Sunday night to stake a claim as the best team in the NFC, and right now the top team in my Power Rankings.
