If the Tampa Bay Buccaneers miss the playoffs by one game, all they will have to do is point a finger at Sunday’s contest against the Atlanta Falcons. The planets aligned on Sunday for the Buccaneers and with a win, Tampa could have moved into one of the two wildcard seed, instead they remain one game out.
Prior to kickoff, the Buccaneers learned that they would be without CB Eric Wright, who is suffering from a Achilles injury. That left E.J. Biggers and rookie Leonard Johnson to take care of business against Roddy White and Julio Jones. Buccaneers fans were already aware of the limitations surrounding the NFL’s worst pass defense and Matt Ryan had no problems carving them up like a Thanksgiving turkey.
Ryan started the afternoon completing ten straight passes and finished the afternoon connecting on nine of his ten. There was some room for improvement however by Ryan, after all, he had six incompletions on the afternoon. He completed 26 of 32 pass attempts for 353 yards and a scor...

Remember when those silly pirates beat not only the Saints but the Falcons on their way to an impressive 4-2 record last year? If you said, "very vaguely," then congrats, you are in my boat. Problem was they never won a game after going 4-1 and weren't...

If week 11 in the NFL had one name assigned to it, it would be Houdini. The smoke and mirrors used by Houston, Dallas, Tampa Bay, and Atlanta to magically pull victories out of strait jackets is nothing short of miraculous. The top suicide picks all managed to inch out wins in dramatically late fashion: Matt Ryan throws five interceptions yet the Falcons fly passed the Cardinals...
The Falcons extended their NFL-best record to 10-1 with a win in Tampa Bay on Sunday. But while the standings may tell you Atlanta is the team to beat in the NFC, some glaring flaws could keep them from realizing their championship dreams.

Some Atlanta players seem uncertain about who gave the Falcons' their lone loss of the season.
Did the Saints beat Atlanta, or did the Falcons beat themselves in their 31-27 loss at New Orleans on Nov. 11?
