Tampa Bay will take on the Atlanta Falcons at 4:05 EST on FOX the game is expected to be a blowout in favor of the Bucs. An understandable sentiment when you look at the myriad of weapons Tampa can throw at any defense.
Atlanta’s only hope of winning this game is if they perform a magic trick and keep Matt Ryan upright enough for him to win a shootout. Something incredibly unlikely for an Atlanta team that needs to show growth in week two.
Defensively Tampa is going to throw arguably the best pass rush in football at Matt Ryan giving him few chances to take advantage of a compromised secondary.
The Atlanta Falcons are going to give Tampa a much tougher game than expected in week two
The Atlanta Falcons are going to lose this game, however, it is going to be a solid showing for a unit wanting badly to bounce back. Beating Tampa on the road is an impossibility but Ryan is going to have a huge game and keep his team close reminding the league just how underrated and underappreciated he has been.
Final score Tampa Bay Bucs-35 Atlanta Falcons-27
It is going to become a track meet in Tampa this Sunday as Atlanta battles back to make it tight before Tom Brady put together a game-winning drive against their hapless defense. This game is going to be about two great quarterbacks and the difference will be Tom Brady has support defensively and an offensive line that won’t allow him to be touched.
For Atlanta, it will be a breakout game for Kyle Pitts as well as he catches his first touchdown and enjoys a solid day in a mismatch against Tampa. Calvin Ridley and Mike Davis add in solid contributions in what will be a performance encouraging Atlanta fans this team won’t always be the dumpster fire it was in week one.
