Week 14 NFL Power Rankings

Randall Cobb

21. Atlanta Falcons (LW: 22)

There’s the Atlanta Falcons that conventional wisdom led us to believe exists. Julio Jones? Stud on paper; finally a beast on the field. Matt Ryan? Solid quarterback; over 350 yards passing and two touchdowns. Home field advantage in Atlanta? Falcons knock off the previously 9-2 Cardinals. It always seemed possible, yet it never actually came to fruition. Luckily for Atlanta, it was not ‘too little, too late,’ as the 5-7 Falcons still lead the pathetic NFC South via a tiebreaker over the Saints.
