Atlanta Falcons Top ESPN.com Power Rankings for 4th Straight Week

December 8, 2010   ·     ·   Jump to comments

The 10-2 Atlanta Falcons top the ESPN.com power rankings once again, just ahead of the 10-2 New England Patriots. It is their fourth straight week in the top spot.
The Falcons still hold a one-game division lead over the New Orleans Saints and boast the best record in the NFC.
With two of their last four games against the lowly Carolina Panthers, they have to like their chances of winning the division and earning home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
The Falcons are undefeated at the Georgia Dome this season and quarterback Matt Ryan is 19-1 at home in his young career, so home-field will be crucial for the Falcons’ Super Bowl hopes.
In addition to the Panthers, the Falcons also get the 6-6 Seahawks in Seattle in Week 15 and the Saints at home in Week 16. Should the Falcons go 3-1 down the stretch, depending on the outcome of the Saints game, they could be in line for the top seed.
If they run the table, they will absolutely be the top seed.
