The Falcons are trending upward in this week’s NFL.com Power Rankings, after defeating the Chiefs in Arrowhead Stadium 40-24 on Sunday.

Starting the season at No. 9, the Falcons moved up two spots to No. 7 this week as NFL.com’s Elliot Harrison writes:

“If anyone is going to throw for 5,000 yards this season, it just might be Matt Ryan. All signs in the preseason pointed to a throw-it-around-the-park offense, and while Ryan only attempted 31 passes, much of that was due to Atlanta holding a 40-17 lead late in the fourth quarter. Impressive win all around in Kansas City.”

The Falcons are one spot ahead of this week’s opponent — the Denver Broncos.
