Here comes this weeks round of Power Rankings as they are updated by their respective outlets.
Sports Illustrated (Dr. Z)
#15 Atlanta - Monday night superstar announcers were locked in a serious discussion about world affairs, or horticulture or something when Michael Vick took a big hit from the Saints' Ronald McKinnon, doubled over in pain, and barely dragged himself off the field. "Wake up, pretty babies, Mr. Sunshine is smiling," la la la. See that's what they have commercial breaks for, and two minutes to get yourselves together, and producers yelling in your headsets, "The guy's hurt , for God's sake!"
Noteworthy: NY 4th, Carolina 10th, Tampa 9th, Dallas 11th
ESPN (Pasq, Clayton, Smith, NFL Insiders, Scouts, and more!)
#15 Atlanta - Sounds like Michael Vick is going to be OK to play against the Bears this weekend. But if he's limited at all, he'll be in for a long night against a defense that will chase him all over the field.
Noteworthy: Carolina 7th, NY 6th, Tampa 5th, Dallas 13th
CBS Sportsline (Pete Prisco)
#14 Atlanta - They play what is essentially a playoff game Sunday night at Chicago. A loss could end their playoff chances.
Noteworthy: Carolina 11th, NY 5th, Tampa 7th, Dallas 12th
Crack Monkey Rankings (FOX Sports' Aaron Schatz)
#17 Atlanta - There's a ribbon in the willow and a tire swing rope / and a briar patch of berries takin' over the slope / the cat'll sleep in the mailbox and we'll never go to town / if the Bears bury our playoff dreams on the cold, cold ground / cold, cold ground. NEXT: at CHI
FOX has not been updated. On the average the Falcons are ranked 14th.
