Rise/Sink/Float Week 10

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.

Rise – Atlanta Falcons – The Falcons cemented their credentials as a home-field monster and an NFC contender with a 26-21 win over the Ravens on Thursday night. Atlanta has been terrific at home, and at 7-2 they’re in position to get NFC home-field advantage. If that happens, they become a serious threat to make the Super Bowl. They have an elite WR in Roddy White and an improving young front seven on defense, and we don’t foresee them going away easily.

Sink – Tennessee Titans – The Titans knocked out two Dolphins quarterbacks, yet still gave up 29 points in a home loss to the Dolphins. Miami is a decent team, but Tennessee lost an opportunity here to keep track with the Colts in the AFC South. Even worse, the Randy Moss debut was a bust, as Moss had just one catch late. Tennessee had a chance to stamp itself as a playoff contender, but they proved in this game to be more of a bubble team.

Float – Jacksonville Jaguars – The Jaguars got a thrilling 31-24 home win over the Texans thanks to a 50-yard bomb from David Garrard to Mike Thomas as time expired, but that doesn’t mean we are moving Jacksonville out of the middle of our comparison. The Jags smell like a .500 team that gets the job done at home but struggles on the road, and this home win fits that pattern. So congrats to them on the win, but this win doesn’t move them up.
