With just three days off between games this week, there is certainly no rest for the weary Falcons as they look to face off against their NFC South rival for the second time this season.
We’re running out of ways to describe just how terrible this season has been for the Atlanta Falcons. Just a month ago Atlanta was able to win their second game of the season against a winless Buccaneers team. Four weeks later that same Bucs team returned the favor in spades.
Don’t count out the Falcons just yet. It’s true that Atlanta is currently just 2-4. But with a much-needed 31-23 victory over the now 0-6 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Dirty Birds can still salvage the season with 10 games still remaining.
This is one of those good news/bad news for Falcons Nation. The good news is that only one Atlanta defensive player is listed on this week’s injury report. The bad news is that of the seven other players, six of them are offensive starters.
