Atlanta Falcons: Week 12 NFL Power Rankings (#5)

Last week: 3 (-2)

Record: 9-1

Michael Turner is so useless. He’s averaging 3.1 YPC over his last 5 games with just one carry longer than 13. On the season, he’s failed to convert on goal-to-go carries over 75% of the time. He’s also only caught 10 passes on the year. He literally has no NFL-level skills anymore. He’s weighing this team down and they need to find a competent replacement by the playoffs. Right now, I’m not scared of this team at all. They may be 9-1, but they’ve had 5 wins by a touchdown or less against sub .500 teams, including 4 at home. Denver is the only team better than .500 they beat and that was back week 2 before Denver got hot. They’ve lost to the Saints and they could easily lose to Tampa Bay this weekend.
