The Atlanta Falcons' three victories have been just as impressive as the Texans', if not more. The San Francisco 49ers have a better overall roster than the Texans but their loss to the Minnesota Vikings moved them down two spots. I'm one of the voters, so I can't really argue with how it all turned out.
It's more interesting to see the Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots, preseason favorites, remain in the top eight despite being 1-2. Everyone still expects them to be there at the end of the year. Despite a 1-2 start, both teams should be higher. Voters really think the Arizona Cardinals have a better overall team?
This also was the week when the bottom fell out for the New Orleans Saints. That's what happens when you go 0-3 against three teams that are 0-6 combined when they aren't facing you. Yikes.
