Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Atlanta Falcons Live” Stream @Free. Falcons and Buccaneers are set to meet at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, for the Sunday Football game, to start on 1:00 PM. The game can be seen online via a live stream on the FOX TV.
Most of the time when the “What’s wrong with Matt Ryan” question is raised, the Falcons quarterback follows up with a strong outing. His passer ratings the past five games (two of which were wins) have been 112.1, 45.8, 75.3, 80.4 and 57.3. That’s all over the place. If Ryan wants to prove to Atlanta that he still has it and can be the guy next season, a strong rebound against Tampa Bay is the place to start. — Courtney Cronin
Bold prediction: The Bucs will have three red zone stops on defense. They had two last weekend against the Vikings and three before the bye week against the Chiefs. And for all the positive changes coach Raheem Morris has made, the Falcons are still one of the worst red zone scoring teams on offense in the league, averaging just 48.9% in red zone touchdown efficiency (31st). Scoring for them is going to have to come from chunk plays downfield. — Jenna Laine
Stat to know: In eight wins, Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady has been sacked five times and pressured on 13% of dropbacks while completing 44% of his passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield (four touchdowns, zero interceptions). But in losses, Brady has been pressured and struggled with the deep ball. In five losses this season, he was sacked 11 times, pressured on 27% of dropbacks and able to complete just 21% of passes 20-plus yards downfield (one TD and five interceptions).
Playoff/draft picture: It’s unlikely, but the Buccaneers can clinch a playoff berth this weekend. They need to win, but they also need a tie in the Bears-Vikings game. They have a 97% chance to make the playoffs at this point, whereas the Falcons are eliminated and looking to jump from their current No. 6 projected draft spot into the top five, which FPI gives them a 36.4% chance to do.
