Fast Fact Falcons QB Matt Ryan has thrown a TD pass to an NFL high ten different players
The Falcons are flying high after outdueling the Packers in a thrilling game, while the Bucs have only themselves to blame for their OT loss to the Raiders. The Bucs upended the Falcons in their first meeting but the Bucs had a lot more offensive weapons at their disposal. But the Bucs don’t have Doug Martin or Vincent Jackson or even Jacquizz Rodgers. That is not good when facing the electric offense the Falcons can bring. Matty Ice is back playing at an elite level and with Julio Jones are shredding defenses. This just doesn’t bode well for the young Bucs.
