The Falcons could be this year’s version of the Bengals

The Atlanta Falcons are 2-2 after four weeks, and they could easily be 4-0 if a few things had happened. No matter how you look at it, few media expected this team to fight for the No. 1 spot in the NFC South in quarter of the season.

People around the league take notice, and during a segment on NFL Network Hello Soccer program, Peter Schrager took some time to attribute the Falcons’ recent success. He even suggested that Atlanta could be this year’s version of the Cincinnati Bengals.

“I think everyone wrote this year of the Falcons as a rebuilding year, they’re going to write a quarterback, go from there,” Schrager said. “The Falcons are 2-2, they’re at the top of the NFC South right now, right there with the Buccaneers. I kinda like the vibe and Arthur Smith is a little salty. The Falcons might be the team no one talked about — the Bengals last year — doing a little thing in a wide-open NFC.

Although the Falcons haven’t had the cap space to sign high-level free agents in recent years, they have drafted well in some areas and found some free agent gems in Cordarrelle Patterson and Dee Alford over the course of the year. the last two off-seasons.

The future looks bright at the moment, but it would be much brighter if Atlanta could defeat Tampa Bay in Week 5 to take first place in the NFC South.
