The Atlanta Falcons just lost to the Houston Texans in what could be described as a low-budget pilot for full season of Sharknado episodes. Atlanta looked worse than the team that went 4-12 last season and like it didn't deserve to win any games this year.

Not only that, they lost one of their top offensive linemen in Sam Baker. He potentially is out for the season with a hyperextended right knee that could wind up being a season ending injury. And to add insult to this injury, this could be the last moment Baker plays for the Falcons with how his contract is structured.

The Falcons need to make sure that they improve the team from head to toe after this weeks showing. Atlanta needs to start from the inside-out and hope that some of their issues are just rust and chemistry instead of lack of talent.
