25. Atlanta Falcons (1-4)
Recap: The Atlanta Falcons’ defense was a sieve against the Houston Texans in Week 5. Dan Quinn’s squad allowed 53 points and 592 total yards, as Deshaun Watson picked apart the Falcons defense from beginning to end.
Pros: Matt Ryan actually had a good game here. He threw for his second-highest yardage total of the season (330), found the end zone three times, and the Falcons offense scored 32 points. The only problem was the defense completely let the offense down.
Cons: The Falcons’ defense is awful and there’s just no way it can stop offenses that have even a shred of competence. On offense, the ground game has no life, and Julio Jones has been quiet for two weeks in a row now.
Outlook: The Falcons draw what should be a winnable matchup with the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6, although with the way this defense is playing, winnable might be the wrong word to use. Quinn has got to be on the hot seat as the Falcons are facing yet another failed season on his watch.
