Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Atlanta Falcons



Evening All - Thursday Night Football from the NFC South tonight as the Atlanta Falcons and the best offence in the NFL travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers. Atlanta are big favourites for this one and the action will commence shortly. I'm Stephen Clark, By The Mins resident night owl, and I'll be calling this one tonight.

It might be Football night in Tampa but there are not many of the locals there to see it. A very sparsely populated Raymond James Stadium on the gulf coast of Florida tonight.

These two sides met in Week 1 and the Bucs pulled off a shock 31-24 win in Atlanta. High scoring games are the norm for the Falcons this season with an average of 62 points a game. We will settle for a scorefest tonight.

National Anthem time.

Falcons kick it off and as per usual it sails into the End Zone for a touchback. Bucs start on the 25 and move backwards after a loss of 1 by Barber on 1st down

On 2nd down Winston fires to the sideline to Humphries for a 10 yard pick up. Smith up the gut on the next play gains 7 yards and a 1st down

TB 1st & 10 - Winston airs it out down the sideline looking for Smith but it is incomplete.

2nd & 10 - Peyton Barber with another nice run off the right side of the line for 8 yards brings up 3rd & 2

Winston over the middle to Mike Evans after the QB was pressured picks up 17 yards and moves the Bucs into Falcons territory

1st & 10 - Play Action from Winston and he fires to Evans who can't hold on to the ball and almost diverts it into an interception.
