Are the Falcons a trend or mirage?

Fortunes in the NFL can change very quickly, and no team demonstrates that better than the Atlanta Falcons. Last season’s 4–12 finish put them in the basement of the NFC South, but with two wins in the first three games this season, they grabbed the division lead and became the highest scoring team in the league. Atlanta scored 56 points en route to a drubbing of the Tampa Bay...
