The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons fight for position in the NFC South on Sunday
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Atlanta Falcons, a couple of teams that were considered serious playoff contenders to start the NFL season, both suffered losses in Week 1 of the season. However, both recovered with wins in Week 2, and will face each other in Tampa on Sunday riding a bit of momentum.
Whoever wins will likely walk away from the game feeling like a favorite to make a run towards the playoffs, while the loser will find themselves in a serious hole behind the winner and the New Orleans Saints in the NFC South. Both teams have quarterbacks and running backs who are coming into the game off the back of good performances, while both teams also have very shaky defenses. Expect a close game and a lot of points.
