5) Curtis Lofton's 14 tackles and pick-six vs. Tampa
The Falcons middle linebacker had a career year and was without question a Pro Bowl snub with his 147 tackles, good enough for fifth in the NFL in 2011. Lofton finished off the year with perhaps his best game of the season as the Falcons faced NFC South rival Tampa Bay at the Georgia Dome in the regular-season finale. Lofton was everywhere that Sunday, and when the dust settled he found himself in the stat book with 14 tackles and a pick-six — the first NFL touchdown of his four year career. Lofton tipped a wayward Josh Freeman pass to himself, hauled it in and booked into the end zone for the score on a day when points came in bunches.
