FoxSports.com: 10 Things That Will Make or Break the NFL in 2012

10. The Atlanta Falcons in January

I know. They’re a playoff team. Seems like they always are. But for as good as Atlanta is in November and December, that team always stinks in January. Atlanta is 0-3 in playoff games since QB Matt Ryan and head coach Mike Smith showed up in 2008, and Tony Gonzalez still has never won a playoff game during his Hall of Fame career. There’s a new offensive coordinator, second-year players Julio Jones and Jacquizz Rodgers are both expected to make the leap, and the defense looked great all summer. But none of it matters until the Falcons win a postseason contest. If Atlanta can win one — be it wild card or divisional round — watch out! Confidence grows once you get that monkey off your back. - Peter Schrager (AP Photo/John Bazemore)
