The Atlanta Falcons bounced back from the season opening loss to the Chicago Bears by overcoming the Atlanta Falcons late in the game on Sunday Night Football. They'll leave the confines of the Georgia Dome for Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. The odds makers don't feel confident in either team this week. As Odds Shark's odds have it, the opening odds had the Falcons as one-point road favorites. However, other odds have since moved it to either a push or a one-point favorite in the Bucs.
Matt Ryan didn't even reach 200 yards in Sunday's victory over the Eagles, but he did throw for his first four touchdowns on the season. Running back Michael Turner continued his strong start to the season with 114 yards on the ground and his first touchdown of the year.
The Buccaneers also joined the one-win crowd in Week 2. Following a loss to the Detroit Lions in Week 1, the Bucs handed the Vikings their second straight loss after holding a halftime lead. Down by 17 at halftime, LeGarrette Blount added two rushing touchdowns and quarterback Josh Freeman found Arrelious Benn for a 25-yard strike in the end zone. The Bucs rush defense is the second-worst in the league, so it could be a long day against Michael Turner.
