Buccaneers vs Falcons: TV Schedule, Live Stream, Time and Predictions

The Atlanta Falcons have been one of the biggest disappointments this season. They just can’t find a win and their star players are dropping like flies. Julio Jones is out and Roddy White will not be available in this game. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a rookie quarterback running their ship, but they have a chance to take out the Falcons. Rookie QB Geno Smith already has a win against the team.

Buccaneers Player to Watch: Vincent Jackson

Vincent Jackson is one of the top pass catchers in the league and last week the rookie Mike Glennon was able to hook up with the vet a few times. Jackson had 9 catches for 114 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Glennon might be getting a little more comfortable in the pocket and throwing the ball out to Jackson. Jackson could have another nice performance this week.

Falcons Player to Watch: Tony Gonzalez

Who is Matt Ryan going to throw the football to? He can try to rely on Tony Gonzalez all day, but I am sure that the Buccaneers would try to keep their defense focused on Gonzo for most of the game with all the other weapons on the sideline. If Gonzalez is botteled up, not sure who Matt Ryan will be throwing it to.

Prediction:

This game is a lot more difficult to select than it should be. The Falcons should win this game handily, but the team has not won games that they are supposed to win and they are without all their receivers in the game too. Somehow, the Falcons will be able to move the football enough to pull out a win against the Bucs though.
