Looking back at the 2011 NFL Draft, several teams passed with flying colors, while others had a draft they would like to forget
The Falcons are still the NFC's top seed, but if they play with the same effort they did in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay, it could be another one-and-done scenario.
The top seed in the NFC looked anything but that on Sunday as Tampa Bay swarmed Falc ons QB Matt Ryan on defense and Buccaneers RB Doug Martin reeled off 142 rushing yards.
Despite Calvin Johnson's record-setting performance, Atlanta came away with a 31-18 victory on Saturday night to ensure home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin and running back Ahmad Bradshaw are actually pretty similar in nature. They're both singularly focused, competitive and demand perfection from themselves. But when it comes to evaluating Bradshaw's health, the two couldn't be more different.
Sunday's 34-0 Falcons win over the Giants had to look pretty familiar to both fan bases. Only this time, instead of beating Atlanta 24-2 by forcing two turnovers on downs, it was New York that failed to convert two crucial fourth downs.
With injuries to key players in the secondary, the Giants will have to get a good performance from their defensive line to counter the Falcons' potent passing game Sunday in Atlanta.
Despite a 20-point second half rally, Atlanta couldn't overcome an awful first half and dropped its second game of the season.
