Are Falcons championship contenders?

ATLANTA -- The Falcons sure looked like an elite team in Thursday night’s victory against Jacksonville.

Yeah, the Jaguars might not be the best measuring stick. But, for the first time all season, Atlanta looked like a dominant team on offense and defense. They could be getting hot at just the right time of year.

That apparently caught the attention of our friends at SportsNation. They’ve got a whole page of polls involving the Falcons and you might want to head over there and cast some votes.

One of the questions is “Are the Falcons legitimate championship contenders?’’ There also is a poll on if Matt Ryan is an elite quarterback and three other polls.
