Not likely, but membership in the awful NFC South has Atlanta sitting pretty despite its ugly play.
Sunday's win over Tampa snapped a five-game losing streak, which brings us to some history: Bill Smith from NFL Research noted that Atlanta would become just the second team in league lore to make the playoffs after losing five straight tilts during the regular season.
The first team to do that? The 1986 Jets, who captured New York's heart with a 10-1 start before torturing fans with five straight losses to finish 10-6. Gang Green backed into the playoffs but made good with a wild-card win over Todd Blackledge and the Chiefs before falling to the Browns in a wild double-overtime classic in the divisional round.
