As they host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-6), the Atlanta Falcons (6-4) would be going for their third straight win. They enter the Sunday game as large favourites after their 34-31 road victory over the Seatle Seahawks on Monday night, a game were Blair Walsh missed a potential game tying field-goal for the Seahawks. Atlanta has lost 3 of their last 4 meetings with the Buccaneers straight up against the spread. The Falcons have averaged over 30 points in winning their last two games, and they would be playing their next three games at home, winning all is a must if they want to make it to the post season.
Tampa Bay head into this first meeting between these two sides on the back of a two-games winning streak which followed a 5 games winning streak. Jameis Winston remains injured, but Ryan Fitzpatrick is available and has been a capable backup option so far. Their record of three wins from their last four meetings should give them confidence ahead of this matchup.
