8. Atlanta Falcons (9-6)
The Falcons are in the playoffs as a wildcard team, but their confidence must be at an all-time low after taking a shellacking against the New Orleans Saints (12-3) in Week 16. If they don't want to face the Saints again in the first round of the playoffs, whom they've lost to twice, they need to win this weekend against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-11) and they need the Detroit Lions to lose against the Green Bay Packers (14-1). Despite the plausibility of moving up a seed, to the No. 5 slot, we don't see the Falcons going far this year. They can't seem to handle the elite teams, even with a win against the Detroit Lions (10-5) and Houston Texans (10-5) in their back pocket already.
