And every loss Atlanta has could be the difference between playing in Atlanta, or playing in, say, SF...what's your point? They're not gonna go undefeated just like we're not gonna go undefeated. Any loss *could* hurt your chances down the road and any win *could* help your chances down the road...this is not a new phenomena to sports
The point is you don't want to blow easy games because they will catch up to you. We're not going 13-0 for the rest of the year either.
Everyone has 1 game like that, but if you have a few games like that combined with losing to a few actual contenders or division rivals and all of the sudden you're playing in the wild card or playing on the road in January.
It's not the end of the world, but there is no positive spin here. We lost.
