The Atlanta Falcons’ season is headed down the drain after their most recent loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With the loss, the Falcons have dropped five games in a row including six out of their last seven after starting 5-0.

The Falcons are now 0-3 in division play and will have to face off with the 12-0 Carolina Panthers in two out of the next three weeks. Yikes!

The Falcons didn’t do anything great on either side of the ball and didn’t put the Buccaneers away when they had a chance to. As a result, Tampa Bay scored a game-winning touchdown late in the fourth quarter which puts Atlanta two games out of the sixth and final seed in the playoffs.
