A lot of fans are already calling it “The Best South.”
Now, there’s some good news for Atlanta Falcons fans.
According to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, the team is “a good bet” to win at least a share of the NFC West.
Rapoport reported Tuesday that the Falcons were the third-best team in the NFC East behind the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants.
Rapoports’ report came after the team announced it was in the process of adding a $250 million stadium.
The Falcons are scheduled to play the New Orleans Saints in Week 1, the first time they’ve faced New Orleans since a 2011 loss to the Saints.
