The Falcons got a big win over the Panthers to keep their fringe playoff chances alive, but this was always going to be a multi-year process under Arthur Smith. Matt Ryan looks like he could keep playing a high level once his skill players get back, while Atlanta’s defense is starting to round into form. After a rough start, the Falcons can close the season strong.
The 49ers got a massive overtime win over the Bengals last week, and will look to make it two straight victories. George Kittle’s return has boosted this offense, while Deebo Samuel has broken out this season. Jimmy Garoppolo continues to fend off rookie Trey Lance for the starting quarterback spot and San Francisco’s defense is getting healthier. This team could be dangerous if everything comes together by the end of the regular season.
