NFL Power Rankings Week 16: Atlanta Can Wrap Up The NFC With Victory Over Saints

December 21, 2010   ·     ·   Jump to comments

NFL Power Rankings Week 16: 2. Atlanta Falcons (12-2) - Last Week's Rank: 2

Why They Stayed The Same: It seems that people think of Atlanta much the same way they do about the Bears. They are a nice team that does some things well but they aren't going to necessarily WOW! you in any one category.

However, that's doing a disservice to the Falcons because they have something the Bears don't: Matt Ryan.

Ryan may not quite be able to do the things that guys like Manning or Brady can, but in a situation where the team needs to score there isn't anyone I would take over him. He is as good as any quarterback in football at running the two minute drill.

They can clinch the top seed and home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs with a win over New Orleans next Monday night.
