28. Philadelphia Eagles (+0)
The Eagles play on Monday Night Football against the Seattle Seahawks. I didn’t move them in the rankings, but if everything goes well with the new offense (now featuring more Jalen Hurts) then maybe they won’t be bottom-dwelling much longer.
27. Atlanta Falcons (+3)
I may be too low on the Falcons and that sounds crazy when I re-read it. However, they are 3-1 in their last four games with their one loss being to one of the best teams in the NFL (New Orleans). Today, the Flacons hung 43 points on the Raiders defense without Julio Jones and I can’t help but think that that doesn’t happen by accident.
This team still needs to be torn down in the offseason, but it is becoming more and more clear that this is a team that could actually be very attractive to head coaching candidates.
That means that the question could start to shift from “Can we get a good head coach no matter what we have to sacrifice?” to “Which option gives us the best chance to maximize what is already on the roster?” and that is a massive difference.
