So far Atlanta has done a great job of keeping their players healthy as just four Falcons are listed as injured, while Tampa has 11.
No rest for the weary as the Falcons and the Bucs have a short turnaround for their Week 3 Thursday Night game at the Georgia Dome.
There’s no exact antonym for the word “supremacy.” A very close one is “inferiority.” Whatever the exact opposite of supremacy actually is though, Tampa Bay and Atlanta will be playing to avoid that word as they are now two of the worst teams in the NFL.
It’s a scary thought but whoever loses this game will probably assure their team a top five NFL Draft pick for 2014.
Already reeling at 1-4 this season, the Atlanta Falcons have to consider their upcoming game against the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a “must-win” if they want to make a playoff run.
Finishing the regular season 3-3 against the NFC South, expect a lot of questions for the next two weeks about the Falcons still being a one-and-done Playoff team or if they will finally get over the hump.
What happens when a team has the best rushing defense, but the worst pass defense? On the flip side, what happens when a team has one of the best passing offenses, but one of the worst running attacks? Those two questions should be answered by the end of Sunday’s game when the Bucs defense tries to stop the Falcons offense.
