2014 NFL Power Rankings and 2015 Super Bowl Odds

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

The Falcons are doing better than you might expect after a woeful season.

The 2014 NFL power rankings and odds are out already, because of course they are. What might surprise you is how favorably many are looking at the Falcons.

We'll start with SB Nation's 2014 power rankings. These may look crazy—the Eagles are first?—but the mothership has the Falcons at #7 overall. Ryan Van Bibber and I were two of the few SBN editors to pick the Falcons to go to the Super Bowl, something we both live to regret.

7. Atlanta Falcons - I picked the Falcons to be playing the Broncos in the Super Bowl this year. Dammit. Still debating whether or not double down on my stupidity.

The opinion of one dashing SBN editor may not do it for you, but consider this: Pregame.com has 2015 Super Bowl odds, and the Falcons are in the top ten.

SEAHAWKS: 7/1

BRONCOS: 8/1

49ERS: 8/1

PATRIOTS: 12/1

PACKERS: 20/1

SAINTS: 20/1

FALCONS: 25/1

BENGALS: 25/1

PANTHERS: 25/1
You don't have to dig particularly deep here to understand that the Falcons are expected to rebound in betting circles and in the larger league landscape. Given how cautious most of us have been about

Whether 2013 represented a one-year implosion or something more lasting is difficult to say, though we're all working overtime to figure that out. At least the entire world isn't leaving the Atlanta Falcons for dead.
