FPI: Falcons on outside looking in

Of the three NFC South teams with just two losses so far, it's the defending NFC champs -- not the Panthers or Saints -- that hold the lowest odds of reaching the postseason in ESPN's FPI. Things have changed dramatically from even a week ago, when FPI had the Falcons and Panthers neck-and-neck for the NFC South crown.

Falcons fifth-round pick Brian Hill, waived over the weekend, has just re-signed to the team's practice squad.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said the Super Bowl has not been an everyday motivation for his team. Of course, it's a source of frustration but it's not a motivating factor, he said.

Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer 

``No,'' Dan Quinn said when asked if he's satisfied with how much Julio Jones is getting the ball. ``No i'm not.'' Quinn mentioned that more offensive plays will help that situation, with Jones being such a dynamic player.

Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer 

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said there were no setbacks from the players that were banged up leading into the Dolphins' game such as Julio Jones (hip flexor), Vic Beasley Jr. (hamstring). Expects Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) and Courtney Upshaw (ankle, knee) to get some practice time.
