With a quarter of the season still left to play, the seeding in the NFL Playoffs has started to take shape. Atlanta has guaranteed at least one home game but of course is looking for the number one seed in the NFC.
In the span of four quick weeks, Atlanta saw its franchise-record winning streak end, Matt Ryan setting an infamous career pass record and ended an NFL record.
