These are two teams going in opposite directions as the Falcons have lost their last four games by a combined 124-50! They also had their coach quit after Monday Night’s game which was very strange. The Bucs have won 4 of their last 5 games to take a commanding lead in the NFC South.
The Falcons will probably throw the ball a lot in this game as they have nothing to lose at this point in the season. Look for Chris Redman to challenge the Bucs’ DBs deep with Roddy White and Michael Jenkins. The Falcons would also be smart to let Jerious Norwood get the ball as the main running back in this offense as he can go the distance on any carry.
The Bucs will likely keep feeding the ball to Ernest Graham who has done an outstanding job as the main man in the running game. The Falcons are allowing 123.7 yards rushing per game this season so Graham should find a lot of running room. Jeff Garcia is a master at play action passing and he could have a field day throwing the ball to Joey Galloway this weekend.
PREDICTION: TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS 24, ATLANTA FALCONS 9
