Atlanta Falcons outlast Buccaneers to win 3rd in a row

Adjust Comment Print

For much of the game, Jones had more total yards than the entire Tampa Bay offense (he ended with 253 receiving yards, while Tampa Bay had 283 receiving yards as a team) and just as many scores. In what was originally thought to be a huge NFC South showdown, the Bucs ill be looking to keep their slim playoff hopes alive by beating the Dirty Birds in Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

If Atlanta can get some points on the board early in the first quarter and take that into half-time, I think the Falcons should be able to handle their business easily against the Bucs on Sunday. Shortly after, the Falcons responded with a 49-yard field goal by Matt Bryant to tie the game up 3-3.

The Buccaneers (4-7) rebounded from a 27-6 deficit behind Ryan Fitzpatrick and drove deep into Atlanta territory after forcing a fumble at the other end of the field.

In the process of dominating Tampa Bay's secondary, Jones surpassed Hall of Fame wide receiver Lance Alworth for the most receiving yards and Anquan Boldin for most receptions for a player through his first 90 National Football League games, according to the Falcons' official website. The Falcons longest pass of the day, however, went to Mohamed Sanu, who found Jones for on a 51-yard bomb for his first touchdown of the day. Tampa Bay will try to get revenge in Week 15.

Balkh records 443 cases of violence against women
According to the data, 43% of women in the European Union have endured forms of psychological violence by their partners. If these statistics don't spur you to take action against violence against women, then one can only wonder what will.


The Falcons extended that lead to 27-6 on the opening drive of the second half, but the Bucs clawed back, getting two touchdowns from backup running back Peyton Barber to get within 27-20 early in the fourth quarter. Coleman finished with 97 yards rushing on 19 carries.

Sanu remained ideal in his career when throwing.

On the throw to Jones, Sanu took the snap out of shotgun on third-and-1, while Ryan lined up wide right in a receiver slot.

"We're just having fun", Sanu said.
