16. Atlanta Falcons (7-5, LW: 14): Three of the Falcons' final four games are the Panthers, Jaguars and Bucs. You gotta win those. Plus, that Monday nighter against New Orleans in Week 16 looks to be huge right now.

The Atlanta Falcons (7-5) currently sit two games back from the New Orleans Saints (9-3) in the NFC South division. But they are right in the thick of the wildcard race along with the reeling Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions, who are both at 7-5 and have both dropped two straight.

The Saints come in at No. 2 this week with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at No. 23, and the Carolina Panthers at No. 26 to round out the NFC South power rankings.
