Falcons vs. Buccaneers: What you need to know to watch Week 6 action in the NFC South

The Falcons are going to try Womens Logan

 , very hard, to thread the needle the rest of the
way. That means one of the great runs in franchise history, and it begins with
the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.The Bucs are .500 and have a couple of strong wins this
season, but their awful defeat at the hands of the Bears was even worse than
Atlanta’s defeat at the hands of the Steelers. That leaves both teams coming off
a humiliating loss, but the Bucs also are coming off a bye week. The Falcons’
season either all but officially ends here, or they live to fight another day,
and there’s not much more to be said than that. The Bucs aren’t simply going to
roll over, no matter how much we might like that. They’re fighting for
relevance, they’re fighting to not have to clean house again, and they’re
fighting to stay alive in the NFC South in their own right. A team like Tampa
Bay has had to absorb years and years of being a punchline Womens

 , especially on the other end of some
serious ass-kickings from other teams in the division, and this is supposed to
be the year when it all comes together. If the Falcons were totally healthy, I’d
say they walk away with this one. In their current state, and with their current
problems, no outcome would really surprise me. Here’s what you’ll need to know

GameKey Questions: Will the Falcons be able to return to their high-flying ways
on offense against a truly awful Buccaneers defense? Will Grady Jarrett be back
to help hold a pretty potent Bucs offense in check? Oh god http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/ryan-schraeder-jersey ,
how many points will they score?How every NFC South team but the Falcons fared
in Week 2 It’s common knowledge in sports that, if you take care of your own
business, you don’t have to worry about anybody else as far as the standings are
concerned.While this is entirely true, getting some help along the way is never
a bad thing. This column will be completely dedicated to the results of the
other three NFC South teams throughout the season, and hopefully we’ll be able
to bask in their failures together.Here is how the Falcons’ division opponents
fared in Week 2:Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27, Philadelphia Eagles 21What’s going on
down in Tampa? Ryan Fitzpatrick, who’s only playing because starting quarterback
Jameis Winston is in the middle of a three-game suspension, has been the most
impressive QB in the NFC two weeks in.“Fitzmagic” sliced and diced the vaunted
Philadelphia Eagles defense to the tune of 402 passing yards and four
touchdowns. The Bucs led by as much as 20 at one point, and managed to fight off
a Philly comeback attempt to move to 2-0 on the season.Tampa Bay was powered by
75+ yard, game-breaking Womens Brian

 , touchdown catches from DeSean Jackson and OJ Howard
in this one, gashing an Eagles defense that stifled the Falcons last week. That
same defense gave up 436 yards this week.I think it’s safe to say that the Bucs
have been the surprise team in the NFL two weeks into the new season. After
difficult matchups in New Orleans and against the Eagles, Tampa Bay is not only
surviving this difficult early-season stretch, but they’re thriving. It would be
difficult to see the Bucs putting Fitzpatrick back on the bench after Winston
returns.New Orleans Saints 21, Cleveland Browns 18Zane Gonzalez whyyyyyy?! The
New Orleans Saints escaped an embarrassing defeat at the hands of the Cleveland
Browns thanks to a lot of luck. Cleveland’s kicker, Gonzalez, missed two field
goals and two extra point attempts, leaving eight points on the board in a game
where his team lost by three.A week after their defense got gashed repeatedly,
it was New Orleans’ offense which almost didn’t show up this time around. Even
with a late surge which ended up winning them the game, the Saints only managed
to muster 275 yards of total offense.Up by six Womens Grady

 , with the Browns facing a decisive 4th-and-5 on the
back end of the 2-minute warning, New Orleans gave up a 47-yard touchdown catch
to Antonio Callaway on a picturesque pass by Tyrod Taylor. With a chance to take
the lead, Gonzalez missed the PAT. Following a Field Goal drive by Drew Brees
and company, the Browns once again fought their way downfield and gave Gonzalez
a chance at redemption in the form of a 52-yard potential game-tying Field Goal.
He missed.The Saints are lucky to have won this game, as the Browns led 12-3 at
one point in the fourth quarter. A win is a win, however, and the Saints pulled
it out. Michael Thomas scored two more touchdowns to build on his impressive
start to the season.NFC South Standings after Week 2Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-0
