Rise/Sink/Float Week 6

Each week, we preview teams that are moving up and moving down in our weekly Football Relativity comparison. We’ll analyze all 32 teams on Tuesday.

Ahmad Bradshaw of the Giants, from espn.com

Rise – New York Giants – The Giants won their third straight, jumping out to a lead over the Lions and then holding on for an eight-point victory. The Giants haven’t taken care of business like that at home since the first game of the season, and seeing them do so is a great sign that they can establish themselves as a top dog in the NFC East.

Sink – Chicago Bears – The Bears had a great opportunity to move to 5-1, but they blew a home game to the Seahawks, losing 23-20. That’s a crushing loss for a team that could have seized control of the NFC North with a two-game lead with a win.

Float – Atlanta Falcons – The Falcons never really were in the game in Philadelphia, falling behind 21-0 and losing 31-17. But a loss on the road against a quality team – which the Eagles are – is not reason to knock the Falcons down the rankings right now. They’re still a threat in the NFC South, and this performance doesn’t change that.
