The Atlanta Falcons were victorious on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, topping their NFC South rival 27-21 at home.
Once again, it wasn’t pretty, and the game had every Dirty Bird in the nation on the verge of cardiac arrest. But for the sixth time in eight games this season, the Falcons added another one to the “win” column.
The Falcons have defeated both of the South rivals they’ve played this season, including the big win at the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints. And with their win on Sunday, the Falcons sit 1/2 game ahead of the Saints, and currently hold the tiebreaker.
At 6-2, the Falcons are also tied with the best record in the NFL.
Rise up and get pumped, Falcon Nation! It may not have been pretty so far, but our boys are one of the best teams in the NFL. And if they can keep squeaking out these wins, we’ll be in the playoffs and on our way to Dallas in no time!!!
