9-1.  That's the Falcons' record following a grisly 23-19 win over an annoying Arizona Cardinals team that picked Matt Ryan off five times, and forced six total Falcons' turnovers. 

Even though it counts towards the standings equally with more impressive wins like Philadelphia and Denver, yesterday's win did little to suppress creeping doubts about this team after last week's narrow 31-27 defeat in New Orleans

Still, I am willing to bet that if I had told you during the preseason that the Falcons would win nine of their first ten games, have a three game lead in the division through Week 11, and be in position to be the top seed in the NFC playoffs, you wouldn't have believed me as much as the diehard fan in you would've wanted to. 

The Falcons will play divisional opponents in four of their last six games, with the other two matchups coming against slumping Detroit (4-6) and the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants (6-4). 

Let's take a look at eleven Falcons players whose performances will be pivotal to the Falcons' success these last six weeks leading into the playoffs.
