Week 13 NFL Power Rankings: Atlanta Falcons Lowest Ranked Seven-Win Team At No. 14

Winning five of their last six games hasn't done much to improve the Atlanta Falcons' reputation nationally, as they check in at No. 14 in SBNation's latest NFL Power Rankings:

14. Atlanta Falcons (7-4, LW: 15): The Falcons have won five of their last six with the one loss coming in overtime to the Saints. They're hot right now and they'll need to be with two more first place teams on their schedule.

Atlanta has benefited from a relatively easy schedule, going 2-3 against teams above-.500 and 4-1 against teams below-.500.

The good news is they only have two more games against above-.500 teams, and one of those games is against the Houston Texans, now down to their third-string QB.

So if the Falcons can win the games they are supposed to, they'll finish at least at 10-6, which should be enough to get them into the playoffs in the relatively weak NFC.
